The Twin Cities Tap Festival will be held at the Cowles Center for Performing Arts and the adjacent Hennepin Center for the Arts in downtown Minneapolis' Cultural Theater District. The newly renovated Cowles Center is conveniently located right off the Warehouse District Light Rail stop (blue and green lines), directly across from the now iconic Bob Dylan mural, and within walking distance of Target Field and North Loop district.

The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts permanently connects two of downtown Minneapolis' most historic structures, the former Hennepin Center for the Arts (HCA) and the former Shubert Theater, which originally stood two blocks apart. 

The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts is the Twin Cities' newest arts center and the flagship for dance in Minnesota. Centrally located in downtown Minneapolis, The Cowles Center includes the newly refurbished 500-seat Goodale Theater; the former Hennepin Center for the Arts, home to 20 leading dance and performing arts organizations. The Cowles Center is a catalyst for the creation, presentation, education, enjoyment and celebration of dance and the performing arts.



We encourage attendees to use public transportation or to carpool. The Cowles Center is conveniently located 1/2 a block from the Light Rail station at 5th and Hennepin (just a stop before Target Field). Or take an Uber or Lyft to be dropped off at the front door! Parking is available in various nearby ramps and with limited street parking.
