Mark your calendars now for our 11th Annual Global Roots Festival scheduled for September 23-25, 2019! The Global Roots Festival offers Minnesotans three nights of FREE music, featuring local bands on our community plaza, mainstage performances with two international bands per night, and “extra-curricular" events like artist lunches, Q & A's, educational programs, and more.

We’ll be announcing our 2019 artists soon, but for now, get a taste for The Global Roots Festival in our 2018 recap video below:

Goals of The Global Roots Festival

  • Provide Minnesotans the opportunity to hear live music rooted in traditions from around the world

  • Educate audiences about cultural difference in our increasingly diverse state

  • Give Minnesotans of a variety of backgrounds an opportunity to connect with their cultural roots

  • Facilitate opportunities for intercultural interaction, education, and collaboration

  • Position The Cedar as a homebase for international artists visiting the region

  • Learn from Black, Indigenous, and People of Color musicians and youth in our community who we partner with to curate and guide performances and programming.
