The organizers of Mile of Music are putting together a mini-festival for next Monday while a big convention is downtown Appleton.
The annual Governor’s Conference on Tourism will be at the new Fox Cities Exhibition Center.
Mile co-founder Dave Willems says they’ll have about 15 artists playing at nine venues. He says it’s designed for the conventioneers to get a feel for the downtown, the live music scene, and the festival. But he says they’re also inviting the entire community to stop out to see the artists.
The music will run from 3:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., and the hours vary depending on the venue.
