City Wide | Red Wing, Minnesota


Written/Photos by Dylan Overhouse

Hundreds of music lovers flooded the streets, venues, and local shops of Red Wing, Minnesota for Big Turn Music Festival 2020.

Over 200 bands played throughout 23 historic downtown venues Friday and Saturday, packing the doors of local pubs, eateries, and music venues. Fans had the pleasure of catching a indie-rock show, and walking down the street into an intimate bluegrass set.

Home of Red Wing Shoes and Riedell Skates, Red Wing is a uniquely historic mid-sized city nestled along the bluffs and great river road, just south of the Twin Cities.

After a successful third year of BTMF, we are excited to see what’s in store for next year!
