The event is open to the public, admission is free and refreshments will be served.
In 2003, 266 people in Minnesota were diagnosed with HIV, and 24 percent of them were women and 14 percent were people younger than 25, according to the Minnesota AIDS Project. It's estimated that at least 2,900 Minnesotans might be HIV-positive but have not been tested.
