The historic Aitkin Butler Building will host two special performances from some of Minnesota’s most popular local bands – The YoYo Mamas and the Papa, and the Mississippi Fireflies – as part of its Farmers’ Market entertainment series.

The Mississippi Fireflies, coming off of a well-received performance at this month’s Aitkin County Fair, will perform on Saturday, August 26.

The Mississippi Fireflies is a small group of musicians united by Great River Strings who keep the music going all summer long. They are excited to bring a wide variety of styles and pieces from traditional folk to favorite baroque classics to Aitkin Farmers’ Market audiences.

The exclusive free concert will be held outside the Aitkin Butler Building (301 Minnesota Avenue North) during the Aitkin Farmers’ Market, which runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The annual Farmers’ Market features an assortment of items including garden fresh produce, eggs, baked goods, jams and jellies, live plants, yarn and wool products, handmade crafts and soaps, syrup, flowers and herbs.

In addition to the special performance from the Mississippi Fireflies, the 2017 Aitkin Farmers’ Market entertainment lineup also includes a variety of other fun and educational community events.
