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!

Carrie Zwack, Meaghan Sabyan, Dawn Yilek, Clare Tzinski, Mike May, Ric Studer, Lisa Sabyan, Casey Lundy, Janna Idzerda, Carrie Schneider, Dan Brill, and Justin Michael








Support downtown businesses and local musicians by purchasing limited-edition Common Roots buttons and apparel.
