The Minnesota 9-11 Tribute Memorial Concert takes place every September 11 at the Lake Harriet Band Shell. It is a event remembering, honoring military and first responders and celebrating life, America and each other.
NEW .... this year we will be adding something special .... PRE-CONCERT AMERICANA ACTIVITIES ..... BEGINNING AT 5PM which will be featuring diverse community groups and performers, followed by the traditional concert 7-8:30pm.
The entire Minnesota 9-11 Tribute Concert is made up of VOLUNTEERS - including the Board of Directors who come together to plan the concert and program, ask for volunteers to participate, for donations from businesses and individuals ONLY to pay for the candles, music, printing programs and flags used at the concert.
This year we also have support and have been granted monies from a Grant
