9 Nights Volunteers

9 Nights of Music at the Minnesota History Center!


It’s music. It’s dance. It’s outdoors. It’s free. What is it? “9 Nights,” of course, Tapestry’s annual collaboration with the Minnesota Historical Society for Tuesday night fun throughout July and August. Come for a half-hour of dance instruction suited to the evening’s music. Then stay for more dancing, or just to listen to the music! Pack a picnic or buy food/beer/wine. If it rains, the party moves indoors. Check out more info on our 9 Nights page. See you there!
