The food and music festival "A Taste Of MINNESOTA" will soon have new owners. CLEAR CHANNEL AAA KTCZ (CITIES 97)/MINNEAPOLIS morning-driver BRIAN TURNER and business partner KEVIN CAMPBELL have bought it, reports KARE (CHANNEL 11).
"We have the foundation of a really good festival here to build on so that's always something that's great," TURNER said. "We'd like to build on that, make it a little more food-oriented, with some celebrity chefs perhaps, and bringing in some of that food as entertainment methodology."
"Taste of MINNESOTA is the largest free festival between CALIFORNIA and CHICAGO," MADDOX added, "We've got something here for everyone."
