Donate Promotional Items for Performer Goodie Bags

The Duluth Homegrown Music Festival is thrilled to be celebrating our 25th year showcasing local music, art, and film in the Twin Ports! What started in 1999 with ten acts has evolved into a yearly eight- day festival with 200 acts celebrating the unique local music and arts scene in the Twin Ports.

Our festival would not be possible without our many volunteers, and of course, the artists themselves. Each year, as a way of saying ‘thank you’ to our amazing performers and volunteers, we put together “Schwag Bags” which are filled with an array of items donated by local businesses and organizations like yours. Examples of previous items include apparel, gift cards, stickers, coupons to local attractions/establishments, and branded items such as earplugs, key chains, etc.

If you are interested in donating schwag for our performers and/or volunteers, here is the list of
amounts you will need to know for each category:

200 items (minimum) will cover one item per act (entire band/group gets one)
200 items (minimum) will cover each volunteer
700 items will cover each performer (each band member)
1,000 items will cover each performer and each volunteer

If your organization would like to donate items to be included in the annual festival schwag bags, please contact us at, for questions or to coordinate your donation.

Homegrown is a 501c3 nonprofit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.

Happy Homegrown!
