Bread for Beggars, which exists to share God’s glory through sight, song, and story, has been for the past ten years sharing Christian music, artwork, and storytelling on its website and social media through weekly content. After all those years of being a digital organization with just a few pop-up art galleries and presentations here and there, we are eager to bring together some of our favorite WELS artists, musicians, and storytellers at the BREAD FOR BEGGARS FESTIVAL.
The Bread for Beggars team is excited to announce that from June 11-13, 2020, the first-ever Bread for Beggars Festival will be taking place in downtown Fond du Lac, WI. We anticipate a sell-out crowd of 300 participants for this three-day creative/fine arts festival taking place primarily at The Hotel Retlaw and Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts. Along with planning for the FULL FESTIVAL, we are preparing for an additional 2000 attendees to descend upon downtown Fond du Lac for the FREE FRIDAY portions of the Bread for Beggars Festival.
On Friday, June 12, from 4:00-9:30 pm the FREE FRIDAY portion of the Bread for Beggars Festival will feature three different concert stages, multiple art galleries, hands-on art experiences, food trucks, vendors, and much more! We are planning for at least sixteen solo/group musical acts to perform sets throughout the afternoon and evening culminating with a final set by Koiné on the main stage located outside the Thelma. It’s going to be an incredible evening of sights, songs, and stories for the whole family.
