The Historic District Coffeehouse is a free and welcoming open mic venue for both novice and veteran performers.  These are wonderful evenings of entertainment with a variety of music performance, poetry reading, storytelling, and more. Please join us to share your talent with a supportive, appreciative group – or to be part of the audience!

Musicians and artists are invited to perform by either calling ahead to reserve performance time or on a walk-in basis. Audience members are invited to enjoy coffee, snacks, and the show without charge; however, donations or non-perishable food items for the Dubuque Food Pantry are most welcome.
