Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Hambone provides a diverse music and arts education experience to the public in an area of Minnesota that does not currently offer this style of music and type of outdoor arts event. Our target demographic is people of all ages residing in southeast Minnesota and beyond. We will measure the aforementioned outcomes by utilizing an updated process for quantifying ticket, merchandise and beverage sales. We will survey our attendees via email, social media, and print surveys to gather feedback and demographic information.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Provided a diverse music and arts experience to audiences within the ages of 8 to 87 years. Attracted a larger audience of young families with children than in past years. Improved record keeping process. Younger families reached by targeted advertising and additional arts activities for children.
