  • We are re-opening for interactive play on October 8, 2021!

  • Check our calendar for tickets and info about musical guests, special brass brunches, and our COVID-19 safety policies.


The Music Box Village is a place where play, imagination, experimentation, collaboration, community and hard work come together as artist-made, interactive “musical houses.”


mitigating the spread of Covid-19 

Due to the ongoing circumstances surrounding the Delta Variant (and even newer variants) of Covid-19, proof of vaccination or a recent negative PCR test result (72 hours) are needed to enter the Music Box Village. Additionally, masking and safe distancing are required at all of our public events this Fall.

Given the current situation we feel that this is the best way to keep our crew, staff, performers and community healthy. We will be reassessing as new information becomes available. Our primary aim is safety based on adherence to CDC guidelines and local mandates.
