What happens when conversations about a shared love for local artists, musicians and businesses start sounding like music to the ears?
The Central Minnesota Common Roots Festival.
This three-day showcase of grassroots talent, beautiful art and original music started as a way to support the local venues, theaters, restaurants and businesses we love during the massive street construction of historic 5th Avenue in downtown Saint Cloud during the summer and fall of 2017. WE still believe in our mission and we had so much fun, we wanted to do it again!

It takes a community to create a festival.
We’re now accepting applications for 2019 vendors, volunteers, musicians, comedians, drag, burlesque and other performing artists.
While filling out our forms lets us know you are interested in performing, it does not guarantee participation. We give priority to performers/artists/vendors with ties to Central Minnesota. We do our best to be as inclusive as possible.
