Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The number of Minnesotans who participate in arts festivals and folk and traditional activities increases. We will use the survey format suggested by PLRAC staff, announce the survey from both stages and have it available at our Festival Information Booth. John Ganey is in charge of conducting and evaluating the survey. In addition, we conduct interviews, take crowd counts, and ask police and vendors for their crowd and age number estimates.
