Dog sledding in Cannon Falls 

The Cannon Falls Library is hosting a presentation about dog sledding at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 11. Participants will be introduced to the basics of the sport, meet the dogs, learn about the equipment and see the dogs in action. The majority of the event will be outside, so dress for the weather. 

The presentation will be at the Cannon Falls warming house, near the Cannon Falls pool. For more information, visit



"Cracker" will be at the Sheldon Theatre on Saturday, March 12. 

Cracker has been described as a lot of things over the years: alt-rock, Americana, insurgent-country, and have even had the terms “punk” and “classic-rock” thrown at them.

Cofounders Lowery and Hickman have been at it for almost a quarter of a century – amassing 10 studio albums, multiple gold records, thousands of live performances, hit songs that are still in current radio rotation around the globe (“Low,” “Euro-Trash Girl,” “Get Off This” and “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out With Me” to name just a few), and a worldwide fan base – that despite the major sea changes within the music industry – continues to grow each year.

The duo will perform at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 12, at the Sheldon Theatre. Tickets start at $35. For more information, visit

Homemade pasta, sauces

Learn to make pasta from scratch with Chef Antonio Cecconi. 

Learn to make pasta from scratch, including long-cut fettuccine, and filled pastas such as tortellini and ravioli. You will then move on to creating the three Italian “mother sauces” — red, white, and green, the three colors of the Italian flag. With these basic skills, you will have the foundational knowledge and technique to create any traditional Italian pasta dishes your taste buds desire. The dishes that will be made are fettuccine bolognese (meat sauce), tortellini ai funghi (cheese filled with wild mushroom sauce), linguine puttanesca (tomato caper sauce) and homemade lasagna (two sauces).

Plan to join other participants for a pre-class social hour at 5 p.m. in Sala Del Vino. A glass of sparkling Brillante will be provided. As participants cook through each course, they will taste wines Chef Antonio has selected to pair with this menu.

The class will be 6-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 10, at Villa Bellezza Winery & Vineyards. The event is $75 per person. For more information and to reserve a spot, visit
