The music part of the festival starts at 7:30 p.m. with Yester at Teatro Zuccone, but for political purposes, Homegrown starts when Duluth Mayor Don Ness says it starts — at Tycoons Alehouse, 7 p.m., with his proclamation and the uncasking of the Homegrown Hempen Ale.

“We’ll hold off on it until the mayor makes his speech/proclamation/toast and then we’ll start pouring hempen ales like crazy,” says Brad Nelson of Star Creative, the marketing arm of Tycoons. Normally you would be warned not to drink more than a couple, but everything Sunday night is in walking distance. Go nuts.

7pm Sun 4/28 | Tycoons Alehouse
