Mid West Music Fest
The mission of the MWMF is to promote music and art in the region, creating opportunities for artists, stimulating downtown economic development, and providing diverse educational resources for artists, community members, and children.
December 1, 2020 – Giving Tuesday (Artists Give Back and Art Auction) —
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past seven years, it has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
MWMF will put its own twist on Giving Tuesday by combining it with our Artists Give Back series and an art auction. Many thanks to local artisans and musicians who are helping us create a day of music, fun and beautiful art!
Musicians scheduled to play the virtual fundraiser include: Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon), Nur-D, Humbird, Queen Drea, Soren Staff (Them Coulee Boys), Luke Callen, Lee Henke, Winona’s Little Warrior Drumline, Woolen Lover, and Jason Ziebell/Isaac Sammis.
Art for the auction is being donated by Cody Bartz, Landon Sheely, Ashton Hall, Jon Swanson, Ian Kearns, Abby Lee, Shelly Staehly, Lee Henke, Scramble Campbell, Mark Lee, Siri Undlin, Sam Servais and Doomtree Vault.

Through a two-year study in conjunction with Winona State University Economics Department, it was estimated that over 2 million dollars have been directed into the local economies of Winona and La Crosse through attendees of the annual fest.
