An All-Ages Music Venue and Recording Studio


raised by 219 people

$8,800 goal

THE GARAGE is a multi-stage all-ages (no 18+ or 21+ restrictions) music venue and recording studio that provides young people opportunities to see, experience, and participate in the Twin Cities music scene. THE GARAGE is the place many of us musicians and music fans wish we had growing up. Now we have it here in the Twin Cities, but we need your help.

We’re dedicated to making music and industry opportunities accessible, but also safe for all young people. Alcohol sales are a large revenue source for Twin Cities music venues and with our dedication to working without them, we depend on support from people like you.

We want your support, whatever amount you’re able and willing to give year-after-year or month-after-month to provide young people with a safe, creative space to play, write, photograph, mix, commune.

If you’d like to talk more with us or some of the young people who make THE GARAGE such a special place, contact our Executive Director, Jack, at
