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!

Attention Bike Riders

Tapestry loves bikers. Getting to Tapestry by bike helps with parking and traffic congestion (especially during the roadway reconstruction on Minnehaha) and gets you warmed up for dancing! But please – NO BIKES inside the building. They leave tire marks on the carpet and handlebars nick the walls. Please use the bike racks provided outside the building. Thanks for helping to keep Tapestry looking good.
