You may be wondering, what on earth is Prairiepalooza? It's a new, one-day music festival being held in Central Park the end of this month. Mark your calendars now for Sunday, September 29 for this fun event!
Nearly a year and a half ago, our organization along with our colleagues at the City of Grinnell, began brainstorming ways to enhance and better utilize Central Park as the space was just getting ready to re-open after its major renovation. We and other organizations have done a number of things in that space since that time, but have always dreamed about a music festival that could be compelling for community-members, surrounding communities and tourists alike. Enter Prairiepalooza. The event is designed to be a day filled with music, activities, food and beverage and great conversation with community, and the genre can change year after year keeping it fresh and exciting.
While our team is furiously working to finalize more details and bring the event to fruition, we are very excited to announce that our headlining act for this inaugural show is Love & Theft, a country-music duo out of Nashville, Tennessee with several hits including Whiskey on my Breath, Angel Eyes, and Runaway.
Prairiepalooza is an event open and free to the public; VIP ticket options are available and food, beverage and some activities may require a fee. Learn more and stay updated with event details by liking the facebook page and event here or visiting prairiepalooza.com! We'll plan to see you on Sunday, September 29 in Central Park for the first-ever Prairiepalooza!
