    It’s back and you don’t want to miss it – RAC’s 4th Annual Member Patio Party! It’s just about the best seat you can find for one of Minnesota’s most popular acts on the Summer circuit – Cloud Cult!

    Join us for a night of exclusive RAC patio access while Cloud Cult and Sleeping Jesus rock the Riverside Concert Series. Not only will you have great tunes, we’ll have Fiddlehead Coffee on deck with beer, wine, beverages (via a cash bar) and snacks to keep the vibe flowing. It promises to be one of the best nights of the summer season and we don’t want you to miss it!

    This exclusive event is for RAC MEMBERS only and requires REGISTRATION. Patio space is limited so you must RSVP to this event. Once all our VIP space is claimed — it’s gone! RSVPs help us ensure that only RAC Members (and their guests) enjoy these benefits, so it’s don’t forget to sign up before showing up. Members should have gotten a pass code via email to register online. If you have questions, contact Kalianne Morrison at or call our front desk at 507-282-8629.
