New Glarus Music Fest

New Glarus Music Fest, the annual entertainment event produced by the New Glarus Youth Committee, is Memorial Day weekend Friday night, May 24, & Saturday - Sunday, May 25 - 26, 2019. Music Fest is beyond the confines of a singular tent and the entire village is invited to get involved.

Contact us if you are an entertainer who would like to perform or if you are a business interested in a sponsorship opportunity and/or hosting a musical act.

The plans for this year’s Music Fest involve local businesses getting in on the act. The Youth Committee is inviting retail outlets, restaurants, taverns, etc. to host musical acts over the course of the weekend. Musicians will play at participating businesses with headliners later in the evenings. Businesses may have a polka band, guitar-player, violinist, rock band, etc. The more unique, the better! It’s about presenting music in any form. 

The New Glarus Youth Committee raises funds for scholarships, the annual Fifth Grade Field Trip to Chicago, Lunch with Santa, the Krafty Kids Summer Program, Post Prom Party and a “matching funds” program for projects led by New Glarus youth.

Any business that would like to take part in this year’s Music Fest as a venue, a musical act or as a sponsor can contact the Youth Committee at or via
