The Tribute Fest is celebrating its 8th year at Bayfront Festival Park. Cover bands will grace the Bayfront stage on Friday, August 26 and Saturday, August 27 playing songs from Elvis, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Elton John, Billy Joel, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty, Foo Fighters, The Who, Def Leppard, Stevie Nicks, Janis Joplin, Journey, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin.

The Tribute Fest was set up to raise awareness and funds for homeless veterans in the state of Minnesota. Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) is a nonprofit organization that has been assisting veterans for over 21 years, helping over 5,500 veterans and their families. It is estimated that 1% of the veterans in this state, or close to 4,100, will experience an episode of homelessness this year. MACV is there to assist.

Bring your own lawn chair for seating in the concert area. The Tribute Fest 2016 will take place RAIN or SHINE.
