History of Hip

Thanks for coming to our 2015 season! Check back in the fall for 2016 dates. 

History of Hip has a new home! Programs are now held at the Bedlam Theatre, 213 East Fourth St., St. Paul. 
An informal series about the origins of all things hip, History of Hip takes Saint Paul as its subject this year! That’s right: Saint Paul, Minneapolis’s less flashy older sister, is hip. So, hop off the Green Line at the Union Depot stop (or park in the Lowertown ramp) to join in the conversation about a Saint Paul Renaissance at the Bedlam Theatre while we also explore some of the great destinations and events of Saint Paul’s storied past.
 $15 ($12 MNHS members). Please note: These are 21+ events. Ticket price includes one glass of house wine or tap beer and light refreshments.
In the rare event of unforeseen scheduling conflicts, this program will be moved to the Minnesota History Center, 345 Kellogg Blvd. W., St. Paul MN 55102
