From: Sam Brown
Founder of Mid West
Over the past four years, I have been humbled and inspired by the outpouring of support for the Mid West Music Fest. Last weekend, our community welcomed more than 110 bands from around the country. Last weekend could not have been a better example of what makes Winona great. We showcased our beautiful city to bands on tour, visitors from around the country, and reminded ourselves why Winona is special.
I would like to personally thank the 14 venues that housed the onslaught of live music. It was a busy, hectic weekend. Yet, these local businesses rose to the occasion. A musical storm came through our streets, but like the weather on Earth Day, things turned out beautifully! I would also like to thank you, Winona. Thank you for making the choice to support local music. Thank you for creating the warm, friendly Minnesota nice feeling.
Letís do it again next year. MWMF 2014 will happen April 24-26. See you there!
