Open Mic Nights

The next Open Mic Night will be Thursday, August 31 at 6 pm.  Please note this is not our usual day or time! All are welcome!

August Arts Connection

Thursday, Aug. 31   6-8pm

Hosted by Our Town Theatre

Everyone is invited to attend this free gathering that brings artists of all kinds together for an evening of networking and socializing.

Show us what you do!

Writers – read a piece of your original work.

Musicians and singers – Bring your instruments or lend your voice for a jam session on OTT stage.

Visual Artists – Share a sample of your work.  Recently, we got to see Nancy Folmsbee’s jewelry and Donald Smith’s woodworking.  It was wonderful to see their creations and learn their stories.

Friends – Come out and learn more about our local talent!

We encourage you to bring a snack to share.  GCAC will provide beverages.

The Arts Connection is a program of Garrett County Arts Council.  For more information, contact our office at 301-334-6580 or

The third Thursday of every month we open our stage to you! Open Mic Night has become very popular and we could not be happier to see so many people enjoying it. If you write, sing, dance, have something you’d like to read, we would love it if you’d like to share it with us. We start at 7:00. If you’d just like to come and watch, that’s great, too! Admission is free and snacks are provided. See you at the next one!
