Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Mid West Music Fest events will provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans by providing multi-genre live music in multiple venues throughout downtown Winona, Minnesota. Mid West Music Fest uses multiple methods to measure outcomes: tracking ticket sales, tracking zip codes of ticket purchasers, post-festival survey sent our via Mid West Music Fest email list and to Facebook followers, and conversation between staff and patrons.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Mid-West Music Fest provided Minnesotans access to 311 multi-genre musicians and 1,863 attendees and nine venue owners in downtown Winona. This access would not be available without the Mid-West Music Fest events.
