In keeping with the family focus, the 2014 MCCU Twin Ports Bridge Festival will offer some of the most creative and fun acts yet to grace the Bayfront stage.
KIDZ BOP, the #1 music brand for kids, is bringing the “Dream Big, Sing Loud!” tour to the Twin Ports! The KIDZ BOP Kids are taking the stage to perform kid-friendly versions of today’s biggest hits in this high-energy and interactive show. The “Dream Big, Sing Loud!” live show is the ultimate family concert experience that guarantees to get everyone singing and dancing along! The KIDZ BOP Kids have been named Billboard Magazine’s “#1 Kids’ Artists” for the fourth consecutive year. Their newest album, KIDZ BOP 26, was released on July 15th.
Other evening acts on the MEMBERS main stage will include That 1 Guy, an entertainer that combines humor, magic and music from his own pipe instrument to present a family-friendly show that can’t be compared to anything else, and local 10-piece band Red Mountain will perform during a festival finale celebration. Yoga North will host Community Yoga from the main stage as in past years and the day will start early with the Peace Run, a fun run to raise money for the Just For The Fun Of It dances, one of which will also be held during this year’s festival on the MEMBERS stage from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
The KUMD stage will feature local performers Charity Huot, Maddy Siiter, Biochemical Characters, Wood Blind and Black River Revue, along with regional acts including the Gentlemen’s Anti-Temperence League and Clocks and Clouds.
In conjunction with the Lake Superior Harvest Festival this year, there will be more activities than the first three years combined, from live animals and the area’s largest annual farmer’s market to demonstrations and exhibits from local crafters and organizations focused on economic, social and environmental sustainability around the western tip of Lake Superior.
The community festival is free this year until the Harvest Festival ends at 4 p.m., and admission is by donation thereafter. A limited number of advance tickets for the evening acts can be reserved by donation starting at 10 a.m. this Friday, July 25.
The mission of the Twin Ports Bridge Festival has always been to connect people and celebrate community. For the second year, accessibility is a priority. With the help of some great local sponsors, the festival aims to provide a positive experience for those who may not otherwise be able to attend a ticketed Bayfront concert.
