Our annual Northside summer concert series Live on the Drive is back for it’s 9th year! Join us for another fun summer of music, culture, and community. Live on the Drive brings people together from across the Northside and throughout the greater Twin Cities to hear extraordinary music and to celebrate summer, good health and Northside city living.
Last summer, over 4,500 people attended, and we expect even more will come out to see this summer’s incredible slate of Minneapolis-based musicians: Nio Rido (June 9th), #MPLS (July 14th), and Ashley DuBose (August 11th). The food trucks and Movies in the Park are back to finish out each concert night. Artist Spotlights during intermission and more will round out what has become a staple of summer on the Northside.
We’ve established multiple levels of sponsorship opportunities and look forward to hearing back from you by May 12th with your generous gift to Live on the Drive. For your convenience, you can sponsor or donate in multiple ways, online or by mail.
We welcome your sponsorship questions and any requests for more information you may have. Please contact Kesha Walker at the Cleveland Neighborhood Association:
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at Live on the Drive this summer!
Chair, Live on the Drive Committee
