Yoga will be offered in front of Artmain. Senn began practicing yoga in Ohio in 2007 as a way to maintain mobility and build strength. She fell in love with both the physical and mental benefits of yoga and now teaches locally.

Hosted at Main Street Books, Minot Story Hour is a community storytelling group that shares real life stories, in 10 minutes or less. The group’s events offer an open mic atmosphere, where patrons have an opportunity to join in and share their own personal stories.

Nodak Knockouts will share its Roller Derby style, hosted in front of the Taube Museum of Art. Members of the Nodak Knockouts volunteer their time to helping the community as well as creating a solid sisterhood among women from different walks of life.

The 8 p.m. music feature will be provided by Jazmine Wolff Schultz at The Tap Room. Wolff Schultz has been a member of the Minot music community for the past 12 years. She’s a founding member of Pangea House artist collective, and she’s been a member of many local bands, most recently touring and releasing a full length album with her band Vanity Plate.
