As tradition holds, our last bout of the season will feature the Minnesota RollerGirls All-Star program!
In the first bout of the evening, our B-Team, the Minnesota Nice, will show off their stuff. In the headliner bout, the Minnesota RollerGirls All-Stars will demonstrate some of the best roller derby in the world!
Both teams will be battling it out against the Windy City Rollers of Chicago. This is the type of world class derby you don't want to miss!
Saturday, April 7
Doors at 6:00pm, Bout at 7:00pm
The Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium
Our pre-show is still in the works, but our half-time show will feature the McNasty Brass Band! McNasty Brass Band is a collection of Minneapolis/Saint Paul based horn players and percussionists that fuse the Minneapolis sound with the spirit of New Orleans. The outcome of this fusion is hard-hitting dance music and high-energy live shows.

Our season long bout charity is the Ann Bancroft Foundation’s Let Me Play Grant which funds athletic & dance equipment or participation fees for girls ages 5 through high school graduation, giving them the opportunity to be part of a team, build strength and confidence, and push themselves farther—on the field and off. We love the Ann Bancroft Foundation and the amazing work they do to empower girls in athletics!
All season long, we're maintaining a relationship with an exceptional organization! Each bout, we will be collecting new or gently used shoes of any kind at the door to support Shoe Away Hunger, which is a segment of Good in the 'Hood. Good in the 'Hood is a nonprofit charity that offers essential groceries and hot meals for more than 4000 people each month. Through their Shoe Away Hunger program they host shoe drives in order to collect new and gently used footwear. The very best of these new and gently-used shoes are sold on their shoe bus mobile thrift store for a $5.00 suggested donation. The proceeds are dedicated to purchase groceries to support hungry families in need. Every time they sell a pair of shoes, they're able to feed 1 more hungry person with up to 7 days worth of essential groceries. They encourage everyone to put their best foot forward by cleaning out their closet for this cause.
Additionally, this evening, we will be supporting Dress for Success Twin Cities. Dress for Success Twin Cities empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. They offer high touch, high impact career and workplace skills development programs for low income women to help them achieve career advancement, career stability and economic sustainability.
