Appleton Community Music’s mission to provide fundraising support for original music experiences in downtown Appleton and ensuring the future sustainability of the Mile of Music Festival is a community-wide labor of love. Accomplishing that goal requires a year-round effort.

Your donation to Appleton Community Music goes toward funding:

•   Artist Hospitality including lodging and food, hospitality, and support toward artist care and wellness.

•   Participatory music education experiences through the Music Education Team

•   Experiences that build inclusion, diversity and community through original music


Donations to ACM also help provide the artist care that makes Mile of Music a standout among all other festivals, and Appleton a favorite place for musicians to play.

“Watching my artists being taken care of, like they deserve to be, was paramount. They were so happy to be there and I heard, “This is my favorite festival of all time,” over and over again. I want artists who are on the road to experience the oasis that is Mile of Music.” Lara Supan, Vice President/Agent Fleming Artists

“Mile of Music was a perfect 10 y’all! Unbelievably well-thought-out and organized. The accommodations at the Hilton were perfect – at the center of the entire festival and easy to get to stages, get something to eat and parking were all super easy. I wouldn’t change a thing!” Curtis Heimburger, Mom Rock

Your donation to Appleton Community Music helps make all that possible!

Help us keep the music playing and caring for the musicians who make it! 🤘🏼🎶
