Music Industry Night: Music Community Family Dinner at the Museum

Calling all music industry folks: you’re invited to our Music Community Family Dinner on August 17 in the museum’s Big Backyard. Join us in sharing four courses under the stars, using rescued food from Vindeket Foods, a no-cost grocery store located in Fort Collins. After dinner, we’ll have tricks of the trade to staying healthy on the road. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to view FOOD FOR THOUGHT, our new special exhibition. This exhibit offers a unique lens on the ways in which food is connected to climate change and other ecological issues of our times. 

Special thanks to Fort Collins Musician Association and Music Minds Matter for working to present this event with the museum. 

MusiCares, Alliance for Suicide Prevention, The Phoenix, and Blast N Scrap will also be sharing resources and information at the event.

The Music Community Family Dinner is free to attend. Pre-registration is required.
