Granite Falls: Saturday Nights! Fully Funded by Local Sponsors!


Granite Falls: Saturday Nights! was funded locally by the people and businesses of Granite Falls and the Upper Minnesota River Valley.

Anyone who wanted to see the show saw it for free. This production shows that a small community will invest in what it cares about.
