The Queen City Shout Festival kicks off Wednesday evening, August 21, 2019 with 93 music acts, an art gallery and film festival. The five-day event is held on historic Commercial Street in Springfield, and organizers say proceeds go toward alleviating poverty here in the Ozarks.
Music, art, film, poverty relief. These are the elements that make up this year’s Queen City Shout.
I first learned about the festival when one of my bands played there years ago. I’m back this year with another band.
