Mount Olivet had an idea back in 2001. Showcase local music
while raising money for partners making an impact in the community.
For 13 years we've hosted coffee house shows with high profile Twin Cities artists. Our Coffee House provides a unique venue allowing for up-close intimate performances that connect with the audience. Profits go to local non-profit organizations in the west metro!
Making a difference through music. We wanted to host the best artists in the Twin Cities and give them a venue that didn't exist yet. We also wanted the proceeds to go back out into the world. Higher Grounds was born.
In 2012 we took the music outside for the 1st Annual BLUES BREWS N BBQs Festival. In three years we've distributed $56,000 to our beneficiaries, and hosted over 3,900 music, beer and BBQ lovers!
