Mile of Music (also known as MoM or The Mile) is an annual Americana music festival located in downtown Appleton, WI. Started in 2013, the four-day festival runs Thursday through Sunday and is a collaborative event that was co-founded by Appleton marketing executive Dave Willems and Nashville-based national recording artist Cory Chisel, with support from nearly 100 community organizations and sponsors as well as more than 200 volunteers.
The festival features original, handcrafted Americana music of varying styles – folk and indie rock to soul and country – with on average 200+ performers and 600+ performances. It includes up-and-coming performers from the surrounding area to well-known artists who travel from all over the world to appear. The festival is a 'cover-free' zone, meaning no cover songs and no cover charges. Almost every show at the festival is free to the public.
The festival's success over the years has benefited the local community, including local youth music and other scholarships. Profits from the Mile of Music Festival support two funds: The Mile of Music Education Fund, within the Appleton Education Foundation, funds more music opportunities within the Appleton public schools.
