MWMF Presents Live Events
For many years, Mid West Music Fest has partnered with the venues that help us present the fest, area schools, the City of Winona, and other like-minded organizations to present concerts outside the actual festival weekends. These shows help us to showcase the region’s talent, build relationships with musicians and their fans and management teams.
We have also used these events to help further our community work and to launch new initiatives.
Giving Tuesday ( Artists Give Back and Art Auction)
Tuesday, December 1 — on Facebook
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.
