The Big Wu Family Reunion X will be held July 10 – 12 at Harmony Park – one of the countries most beautiful music venues, located in southern Minnesota. This intimate event (limited to only 1500 attendees) will feature two stages of music, camping under the giant oaks, performance artists and painters, unique food and art vendors, canoeing on Lake Geneva and a plethora of surprises and guest appearances.
It is also with great excitement that The Big Wu announces the return of founding member Jason Fladager. Jason will make his return to the band this year beginning with a number of BWFR Pre-Party shows.
In the spirit of charitable giving, The Big Wu has partnered with Vega Productions to rebuild a music and art program in a TBD local school system – each ticket sold will help give the gift of music. Additional details concerning this special project will be released soon.
The initial lineup includes:
The Big Wu (2 Nights)

Fat Maw Rooney
High Strung String Band
