9 Nights of Music

9 Nights is an annual collaboration between Tapestry Folkdance Center and the Minnesota Historical Society, bringing you music and dance every Tuesday night from the beginning of July through end of August. Come for a half-hour of dance instruction suited to the evening’s music, then stay for more dancing or just listen to the band! Pack a picnic or buy food/beer/wine on site.
