Social Science: Mini Music Fest

Wednesday, July 18

6-10 p.m.

At this one-of-a-kind music fest, you can claim your spot under the dinosaurs (or another favorite location around the museum) and let the sweet sounds of your favorite local bands wash over you. From indie to rock to hip-hop, we have something to tickle the ears of every music lover. And you can leave your poncho at home—this music fest will never get rained out!

We have a full lineup of 14 bands for your listening and dancing pleasure! 

It’s okay to be a kid at heart, but you’ll need to bring a valid 21+ ID to this Social Science event.
