Here's a look at how Prince's home state will honor his legacy and mourn his loss:
Prince's home base in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen is marking the anniversary with a roster of shows from artists such as his old band The Revolution, Morris Day and the Time, and New Power Generation. Also on the docket: panel discussions featuring such speakers as his old bandmates - think Lisa (Coleman) and Wendy (Melvoin) from "Purple Rain" and The Revolution - along with many more.
Fans who could afford it spent $999 for VIP passes for the Paisley schedule, and the estate said those were sold out. A relatively cheaper option - $549 general admission passes - was still available midweek.
Prince's siblings, who are on track to inherit an estate valued around $200 million, are hosting an all-night dance party in the Minneapolis suburb of Golden Valley with Dez Dickerson, Apollonia Kotero, Andre Cymone and others.
The downtown Minneapolis club where Prince filmed key parts of "Purple Rain" is hosting late-night dance parties Friday and Saturday with tracks from the late musician.
A memorial street party outside the club is also on tap for Saturday. It will be reminiscent of the one that drew thousands of mourners on the night of Prince's death to cry, dance and sing along.
Pieces of History
Prince's "Purple Rain" costume - purple jacket, white ruffled shirt and studded pants - was put out for display at the Minnesota History Center in St. Paul through Sunday. The museum is also marking the anniversary by featuring handwritten lyrics to an unreleased song, "I Hope We Work It Out," signed by Prince in 1977. Prince performed it for record executives when he first signed with Warner Bros.
