During his weekly video message, St. Cloud Mayor Dave Kleis shared that Granite City Days 2021 will be all about coming together as a community, and all about music.

While standing by the performance stage at Lake George, Mayor Kleis quoted Don Mcclean, "I know this was going to be the long hall the day the music died." Music brings communities together, and that is the focus of the upcoming Granite City Days at the end of June.

The town festival is going to be "new and improved" and feature music in many different ways. There will be a music contest, the parade will be music-focused, the opening ceremony will have music, and they will be seeking community members to provide music for the festival in general.

A team of talented individuals has been assembled, and they are already working to put on the best Granite City Days the town has seen. As more information gets rolled out, the Granite City Days website will be updated. 

After a year of canceled and postponed concerts and town festivals, it will be a breath of fresh air hearing live music come from the St. Cloud area. Coming together as a community didn't happen much, and having music unite us all again this summer is going to be amazing.

Granite City Days is set for June 24th-27th in St. Cloud. Check out Mayor Kleis' weekly message that shared the plan for a musical Granite City Days below.
