Drive-In Show Sept 19: Dead Horses/White Iron Band

Mid West Music Fest has been forced to adapt to the times.  While conditions have not allowed much opportunity for people to gather for concerts, MWMF is excited to partner with Deece Productions to present a Drive-In show at Maple Grove Venues. The performance will be Saturday September 19 from 6:00 PM – 9 PM. Milwaukee-based folk rock act Dead Horses and Minneapolis-based honky-tonk Americana band White Iron Band will be the evening’s entertainment.

Tickets are $50 per vehicle for 1-2 people and $60 for 3-6 people in your car. Tickets are not available at the gate, online sales only. Parking will be assigned on a first come first serve basis on show day.


  • We ask that attendees wear masks in all common areas (check in, bathrooms, etc) practice social distancing & practice hand washing measures.
  • Children must be accompanied by an adult in all common areas.
  • Cars will check in via ticket and license plate number.
  • Maple Grove Venues is also helping to sponsor this event – ALL ALCOHOL ON THE PREMISES MUST BE PURCHASED FROM THEM. We ask you use a Designated Driver.
  • You can bring your own food and picnic set-up, BUT NO EASY UPS PLEASE.
  • No fires or charcoal grills or gas grills are allowed.
  • Absolutely no dogs allowed.
  • Those not respecting social distancing and rules will be asked to leave.
  • In the event of cancelation before the music starts for any reason, we will refund all ticket purchases.

We will be doing everything we can do to ensure you of the safest possible concert experience given the times in which we are living. We ask for everybody’s patience, cooperation, support and understanding while trying to get back to live music.

Let’s BE SAFE and lead by example!
