There are several ways you can get involved with Bridge City Music Festival depending on your specific talents and interests. 

Musicians: If you are a band or solo artist you can apply to play Bridge City 2022! There are a limited number of spots available but, good news, we plan to add an additional stage this year which will allow us to accept a few more artists/bands for BCMF 2022! In order to be considered, your music must have a positive message and be free of all profanity and sexual content. If you would like to be considered to play BCMF 2022, fill out the artist application in the drop down tab under this section in the main menu. PLEASE NOTE: We do not have a large pool of funds to compensate our musicians/bands. We are a non-profit committed to bringing the community together for a free event everyone can enjoy. We welcome bands and musicians from anywhere if they fit the criteria, however, we sadly can cover very little for travel expenses. If you are located a great distance from Virginia, MN, and are willing to cover the majority of your travel expenses, or are going to be in out area for another reason already, we would love to have you apply! If the weather is unreasonable to hold the event outdoors, this event will be moved to the Iron Trail Event Center just blocks down from Olcott Park. This decision will be made by the Bridge City Music Festival Planning Committee in consideration of the weather forecast and current weather conditions by morning on the day before the event. If the decision is made to change locations to the indoor venue, this will be communicated through the Bridge City Music Festival Facebook Page and Website. It is your responsibility to check the BCMF Facebook and Website. 

Vendors/Booths: If you would like to have a table at BCMF 2022 to either sell your products or represent your business or organization, please fill out the Vendors/Booths application in the drop down tab under this section in the main menu. If you are a food vendor, you must have the proper permit and licensing to vend in Virginia, MN. This is a special certification REQUIRED by the City of Virginia and will be verified by Bridge City Music Festival upon your acceptance to vend at this years event. PLEASE NOTE: All vendors must bring their own table(s), tent(s), and chairs and are individually responsible for their own items and sales. We require each vendor to have tents that protect their booth from general outdoor elements.
