Grinnell is introducing a new music festival on Sunday (9/29).  Prairiepalooza is a free event at Central Park featuring several country artists with Love & Theft as the headliners.  Kendra Martin with the Grinnell Chamber of Commerce says Prairiepalooza is a chance to show off the new stage and other renovations at Central Park.

“We wanted to be able to highlight that space along with our new shelter space, the playground, we’ve got a splash pad and it’s really turned into a beautiful community center.”

Prairiepalooza begins Sunday at noon at Central Park in Grinnell.  Admission is free, but there are VIP tickets available that include a meet and greet with the musical acts.  You can get one at
