Each year the Cultural Center invites an abundance of performing artists from dance troupes to folk singers, from theatrical productions to musical comedians.

Our intimate listening-room-style space located in our visual arts gallery, with an open balcony viewing area, provides a unique and unbeatable live music experience.

Longest Night Music Festival

At the winter solstice the Center opens its doors to an evening of music, food, conversation, and connections. Musicians from the region gather and perform on the night of the 21st of December, giving back to the community on the darkest evening of the year. Join us for this free, informal, and joyous get together. Festivities begin at 7:00 pm.

The 2016 Longest Night included musicians Day Gun, Ben Ranson, Erik Keranen, Dave Virnala, Sophie & Donovon Thiel, Amanda Standalone, and the Fargo-Moorhead Gay Men’s Chorus.
