Open Mic Nite in the Garden
In the 19th century, literary salons gathered great thinkers, artists, and writers under one roof for a night of socialization and “improving conversation.” In that same spirit, the Merchant’s House celebrates the works of today’s new writers, performance artists, and musicians.
Come to share your work in an intimate, supportive environment, or simply enjoy the garden all abloom. If you’d like to perform, please bring no more than 4 minutes of material (one song, one poem, etc); sign-up available upon entry. Performances will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., with time for mingling and enjoying the garden after.
Venue: Merchant's House Museum
