The Cedar Cultural Center

The Cedar’s mission is to promote intercultural appreciation and understanding through the presentation of global music and dance. The Cedar is committed to artistic excellence and integrity, diversity of programming, support for emerging artists, and community outreach.

Located in the heart of Cedar Riverside, one of the most prolific neighborhoods for live music in Minneapolis, and the home to the largest Somali diaspora in the U.S., The Cedar plays a key role in maintaining the vibrancy and diversity of the Twin Cities’ arts scene.

Through 200+ shows a year and programs such as Midnimo, the Cedar Commissions, and the Global Roots Festival The Cedar continues to fulfill its mission of promoting intercultural appreciation through global music.
