Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The 2016 Vintage Band Festival will provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans (both musicians and audience members), and it will raise the quality, types and number of arts opportunities in southern Minnesota. The festival will track the number of attendees and their addresses through the collection of on-site donor cards and surveys. Festival volunteers will also estimate the total audience members through head counts and video recordings.

Measurable Outcome(s)

We aimed to provide access to participation in the arts for more Minnesotans (artists and audience members), and to raise the quality/types of arts opportunities. We met those goals by attracting 2,000 people, some for the first time.
