Rock the Cradle 2020
March 8 @ 11:00 am – 4:30 pmFree
The Current’s annual Rock the Cradle event returns Sunday, March 8, for a day of music discovery, art exploration and disco dancing. Held at Minneapolis Institute of Art, Rock the Cradle is a free event for all kids and their grownups to rock out and enjoy activities geared toward young minds.
This year’s Rock the Cradle will include crowd favorites like the Kid’s Disco Dance Party featuring The Current DJs, live music from The Jolly Pops and roving musicians 123 Balloonz. Children’s Minnesota will present the Amazing Kid Zone, packed with sing-alongs, stories and opportunities for young ones to share their creativity.
Rock the Cradle also will feature performances by Siama’s Congo Roots, make-your-own art compositions with Mia’s Family Day program, and stories set to classical music from Classical MPR. Families can strum a ukulele and sing along with local songstress Katy Vernon, learn about solar energy, and get into the science of beat making with DJ Kool Akiem. GoGo squeeZ will be on hand for snacks, and parents can refuel with Peace Coffee.
