An annual celebration of local musicians coming together to showcase their talents, while raising money for individuals facing hunger in the local community, returns to Appleton on June 13th.

The 10th annual Street Music Week, hosted by Heid Music, will once again benefit the state’s largest local food bank, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.

“Street Music week is something we have been proud to help facilitate for the last decade,” said Heid Music President, DeDe Heid. “We are grateful to the incredible community of musicians who have come out and donated their time and talents to inspire people to donate funds to support the efforts of Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin.”

Local musicians will perform outside along College Avenue from noon to 1 p.m., Monday, June 13th through Friday, June 17th. Musicians—of all skill levels—are invited to grab an orange donation bucket from Heid Music and post up on College Avenue to play for donations. Visitors to College Avenue can make a huge impact with just a one-dollar donation and provide four meals.

On Thursday, June 16th there will be an additional nighttime concert at Jones Park in Appleton. New this year, Appleton Downtown Creates will host musicians downtown on Friday, June 17th as part of the fundraising effort from 5-8 p.m.

“Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is extremely grateful to be involved with Street Music Week,” said Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin President and CEO Patti Habeck. “Every year we look forward to working with Heid Music and Appleton Downtown Inc. to celebrate how music can bring us together to solve hunger.”

Street Music Week is presented by Nicolet National Bank, Klink Equipment and Cellcom.
