From July 13-16, 2023, Sunset Park in Kimberly will come alive with the sounds of 35 bands across three stages, featuring both national acts and local favorites. But Paper Fest is not just about the music; it’s about bringing our community together and giving back.

Family Fun Galore

Paper Fest is not just about the music; it’s a true family affair.

Giving Back to the Community

One of the most remarkable aspects of Paper Fest is its commitment to giving back to the community. Last year alone, thanks to the support of sponsors, volunteers, and attendees, Paper Fest donated an impressive $95,000 to 42 local charitable organizations. By attending this festival, you’re not only indulging in a fantastic experience but also supporting various Fox Cities nonprofit organizations.

A History of Community

Paper Fest is not just any festival; it’s a celebration of the rich history shared by our community. Named after the once-booming paper mills that brought life to the Fox River Valley, Paper Fest serves as an annual reminder of our roots. This festival is organized by Kim-Com Promotions, a nonprofit organization made up of dedicated volunteers from throughout the Fox Cities. Their goal is to provide a free-admission event that the whole family can enjoy, offering a mix of live music and activities.
