Festival History

The Tumbleweed Festival started 24 years ago as the brain-child of a small group of people who felt that our community needed a quality, family festival. Through the years it has grown from an initial Sampler style festival to a major contender in the Midwest as a festival filled with children’s activities and acts as well as two stages filled with tremendous regional, national, and international musical performers from various musical genres. In recent years the Tumbleweed Festival has grown to include a Friday Night Local Band kickoff event as well as Christian Rock and Pop musicians. As the Festival approaches 25 years of existence, there is a great excitement about the direction and growth it will take!
