Rock the Leaves, a yearly benefit concert featuring both local and nationally renowned performers, is slated for Aug. 15-17. The last two days will take place at the Scandinavian Heritage Park with the first day at the Minot Municipal Auditorium.  The event usually takes place in Minot’s Oak Park, but due to the devastating 2011 Mouse River flood, it moved to the Scandinavian Heritage Park till it returns home in August of 2015.
“Our goal all along was to put on a concert that would appeal to the masses and help people at the same time. This has become even more relevant now considering the current situation,” said Dan Hansen, event organizer. “The event has really become a community affair.”
Previously, Rock the Leaves has been completely funded by free-will donations. However, there will be an admission fee this year due to the larger acts being brought in. The Greater Minot Youth Concert Association will host a free steak feed Aug. 16 (while supplies last). Besides free food and music, there will be face painting, pictures with Queen Elsa from Frozen, and more festivities for people of all ages.

In addition to GMYCA, CRU and Chi Alpha, two Minot State University student clubs, are helping with this event. A portion of the proceeds from the weekend will go to GMYCA, The Lords Cupboard and Feed My starving Children.
