Welcome! Here's a little bit about us...

Music Fest is the product of the New Glarus Youth Committee, a non-profit organization formed by a group of New Glarus area citizens over 12 years ago with the intention of promoting  and facilitating the youth of the area. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month at 6:30 PM at Toffler's Pub & Grill. All meetings are open to the public and we always welcome new members to join. We vote and pass resolutions as a quorum.

Our largest fundraising activity is the annual New Glarus MUSIC FEST held each Memorial Holiday weekend (Friday-Sunday) with lots of recreational and play activities as well as a lively beer tent with food and bands lined up from early afternoon into the night. See the link for this year's line up.

We are also the sole sponsor of the annual LUNCH WITH SANTA held each December to the delight of hundreds of smaller children. We also organize the Youth Christmas Gifts project and the after-football game Frolic Night. 

With the monies brought in from this festival (which is in it's 17th year!) we are then able to reach out to help our young people with grants and deeds throughout the year. Past donations include extra basketball court space and pool slide at the Village Park, bleachers at the football field, playground equipment at the New Glarus Woods State Park, Junior Great Books at the New Glarus Grade School and many more.
