COFFEEHOUSES

A hidden gem in Plymouth, Mount Olivet transforms into a cozy coffeehouse showcase every month. Featuring the Twin Cities best americana, acoustic folk, and blues singer-songwriters in up-close, fireside performances.

making a difference WITH local music

For the past fifteen years Mount Olivet has been showcasing local music while raising money for nonprofit organizations. We've raised over $17,000 to support ELCA World Hunger, The 30 Days Foundation, and Home Free.

In the past couple years we've refocused our coffee houses to benefit local organizations making an impact right here in the community. In 2015-2016, we raised more than $2,500 for Home Free, a local battered women's and children's shelter.
