Middle Town Market
Each week through the summer, an area near Lake George in St. Cloud, MN called Middle Town Market comes to life. The Middle Town Market has grown to become an unforgettable experience of local food and vendors. From smoky BBQ, fresh sandwiches, super sweet sweets, to hand-crafted artistry and one-of-a-kind merchandise, you can spend hours walking through the aisles.
The atmosphere inside the Eastman Tavern ‘beer garden’ area is always lively. It’s nestled up just to the west of the performance stage and once inside, you can enjoy Coors Light, an assortment of craft beers, wine, and snacks.
The weekly activities in the Little George Town area are very well organized and staffed so your little ones can have a blast! Let the kids burn off some energy by participating in physical activities or arts and crafts each week during Summertime by George!
These sponsors help us deliver the best summertime experience for you and your family at Lake George! Let’s thank them!

When accessing water is as easy as turning on the faucet, it can be difficult for Americans to understand just how vital a healthy, reliable and readily accessible water source is.
Members of the Rotary Club of St. Cloud have witnessed this and other struggles people outside the U.S. face. While the club invests heavily in the St. Cloud area, it also likes to leverage its clout and expertise in international projects.
About once per year, club members head to the Dominican Republic to help solve water problems at the hyper-local level, said Brian Hart, head of the club’s international projects committee.
Rotary clubs unite business and professional leaders for networking, fellowship and community service.
“Rotary opens doors and provides experiences otherwise unlikely,” said Michael Mullin, informal club historian and a former Rotary club president and district governor. In other words, it’s an “on-ramp on to the freeway of the world,” he said.
The partnership between St. Cloud and the Rotary brings more value than just a summertime festival. SBG creates quality-of-life benefits.
“There are three key things that attract people,” explained Scott Zlotnik, City of St. Cloud Parks Director. “We want to be able to provide a great opportunity for open space and the public to be able to enjoy themselves – quality of life. We want to be able to provide great jobs. And we want education. When you have these three elements, you’ll have a fantastic community that everybody wants to move to.”
Thanks to these amazing sponsors who help us bring live music to you!
