Past MN State Fair performers Caitlyn Smith, Tank and The Bangas and The War And Treaty will headline the Virtual Celebration of Culture and Community 2020 three-day concert series supported by The Minneapolis Foundation as part of the Fair’s At-Home Edition, also shining a spotlight on four local non-profits doing outstanding work in the community.
As soon as we learned we weren’t going to be able to gather in-person this year for the Great Minnesota Get-Together, we started thinking of ways we could bring a celebration of culture and community to you, the community, in a safe fashion. As a MN State Fair partner for the past five years, OMG Media felt we could provide creative value to the Fair’s At-Home Edition by doing what we do best, digital media content creation. We decided to welcome back some of your favorite past Fair performers for a nostalgic Labor Day weekend celebration. As part of the Celebrate Culture and Community concert series, OMG Media is also highlighting four local non-profits whose missions reflect outstanding service to the community. They are: ARTS-Us, Philando Castile Relief Foundation, St. Jude and Ujamaa Place.
The #CCC2020 concert series will premiere on YouTube at 6:00pm (CT) on Saturday, September 5, and continue through Labor Day. The series will also be included in the Minnesota State Fair’s At-Home Edition, which will appear on the Fair’s website and social media channels. In addition to links to OMG Media’s concert series, there will be daily fun fair facts, memories, demonstrations and entertainment, history tidbits, creative contests and more. The State Fair’s At-Home Edition will run August 27 through September 7.
