Additional Resources

Like many others, the festival and event industry has been hit hard by the Covid-19 global pandemic. As we all struggle to reclaim some sense of normalcy, organizations like the Minnesota Festivals & Events Association are committed to supporting the producers, vendors, and partners that make up the MN Festival Community. 

As Minnesota, and the rest of the world, continues to mandate masks in an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, we're proud to partner with Rooted Creative in the development of branded masks for the industry. Part of the proceeds from each mask sold from the MN Strong collection will be donated back to MNFEA. With several styles to choose from, find the one that's right for you! Visit the online store to view many different designs and to order yours now!
