Who will be performing at this year's Pierz Freedom Fest, taking place on July 20th, 2024 at the Genola Ball Park?

At this moment, we don't know who the performers will be. We asked Central Minnesota to speak up and let us know who they would like to see this year at Pierz Freedom Fest, or in years to come. We had quite the response. Over 80 comments that included some of the biggest country music performers out there, as well a ton of support to bring in our very own local talent.
