Winter Walkabout Music Showcase
An all-day, multi-venue music festival featuring local music, unique venues, delicious food & drink, community spirit, and the best that Downtown Longmont has to offer!
Save the Date: We'll Walkabout again on Saturday, February 5, 2022!
In a normal year, we’d be gearing up for a magical day of music all throughout Downtown Longmont. Unfortunately, things obviously aren’t normal right now. As much as we wanted to walkabout with all of you this year, we had to delay the event to 2022 when we can host you all safely & comfortably, and give you the Winter Walkabout experience you expect and deserve.
WWMS III is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 5, 2022. We can’t wait to walkabout with you all again next year!
But that doesn’t mean that we’re going to forget about our local artists and venues in 2021. The past year has emphasized the importance of supporting your local community – artists, businesses, and neighbors – and we want to make sure that we continue to promote local in 2021 and beyond. This year, we’re focused on providing some support for local artists and venues while stile spreading some WWMS love throughout the community. Here’s a quick rundown of the things we’ve been working on for this year:
Grab a 2021 Groundhog Button & Support Local Artists! - ENDS FEBRUARY 28!
Were you afraid you wouldn't be able to add a third annual groundhog pin to your collection? Well you're in luck! We're having 2021 commemorative Groundhog Pins made, and are giving them away to everyone who donates to support local musicians! As an added bonus, everyone who donates to the Artists Fund is entered to win a set of 4 tickets to WWMS 2022! Donation window closes February 28!

2021 "Winter Watchabout” Video
Join us for an informal chat with the co-founders to look back at how it all started, reminisce about our favorite moments over the past two years, hear from some past WWMS artists, and take a look at what fun WWMS-related stuff is still happening this year. The video is available on YouTube and the Winter Walkabout Music Showcase Facebook page.
St. Stephen’s Listening Plaza
While you’re visiting the plaza to check out the groundhog ice sculpture in St. Stephen's Plaza at 5th and Main, enjoy the sounds of local musicians being broadcast throughout the plaza. Music broadcast will run from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. daily, beginning Tuesday, February 2 throughout the month of February.
Random Acts of Community
Title Sponsor TBK Bank has partnered with us to support local musicians and local venues who have helped to make the Winter Walkabout so special over the past two years. In addition to purchasing all of the sweet stuff - buttons, t-shirts, and albums - you’ll get for contributing to the artists fund so that 100% of the funds raised go directly to local artists, they’ll also be supporting local restaurants & venues by providing ‘Random Acts of Community’ throughout February - surprising customers by paying a portion of their check at restaurants, or buying coffee or other goodies for lucky downtown customers at random. You never know when you might be the lucky recipient of a Random Act of Community, courtesy of TBK Bank.
Support Past WWMS Artists & Venues Directly
Want to make an even bigger difference and support local artists & small businesses directly? Spend your money locally! Check out our compilation of local musicians to find out where you can stream or purchase their music and support them directly. And don't forget about all our wonderful past WWMS venues! They've struggled through a difficult year, so whenever you can spend locally and support our small buisness community, please do so. Each dollar you spend at a local small business strengthens our #strongmont community!
Walkabout on your own in Downtown!
There are so many unique small businesses and fun places to discover in Downtown Longmont. Come down, take a stroll, explore the Creative District, grab some food or drink, and maybe you'll find your new favorite shop or store or spot.
