“15 minutes of fame,” Drackett calls it.

All genres of music are allowed. Performers are welcome to bring their own personal instruments; duos and group performers are also welcome. The Crosby Arboretum will provide the sound system and sound checks before each performance.

Open mic is a free event; the Crosby Arboretum will provide drinks and donated deserts.
