Celebration 2023 Paisley Park, honoring Prince’s cultural impact, to return in June

Celebration 2023 Paisley Park will once again bring people together to honor the life, work and legacy of Prince, and his creative and cultural impact. Taking place June 8-11 in Chanhassen, Minnesota, the annual gathering will include celebrity panels, in-studio recording sessions, a new artist showcase, gospel brunch, opportunities to see and hear historical Prince performances and some live music.

Slated to take the stage are Sounds of Blackness, members of the NPG, DJ Rashida, Stokley and more, with special appearances from Chaka Khan, Chuck D and Doug E. Fresh. More artists and updates are to come.

The 2023 celebration marks the seventh year of “uplifting Prince’s legacy and carefully preserving his prolific artistic output and his creative sanctuary,” according to Paisley Park’s site. As the number seven was important to the artist, guests will have an opportunity to “take a deep dive into understanding the cultural significance of 7 and how it has been reflected throughout history.”

“We believe that Prince was the heart of what would become one of the most creative and talented communities in the world,” the site reads. “This year, we want to highlight how you, the fam, are continuing the legacy in numerous ways.”
