Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

One measurable outcome is the geographic area that festival attendees are from. Another outcome is whether we attract new participants. We provide a high quality and diverse music and arts education experience to the public in an area of Minnesota which does not currently offer this type of singular event.We measure attendance at both festival and workshops, comparing participation, ticket sales and awareness over last year. We survey attendees via email and print to gather, among other info, zip codes to determine geographic representation. We also solicit feedback via social network sites.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We offered a variety of music and educational programming to a diverse audience in order to provide increased awareness and understanding of roots/blue/Americana music styles and the cultural impact of this music in our society.
