​We’ve Had One, Yes, but What About a Second Breakfast?

Second Break-Fest is a two day festival centered around food, music, and merriment hosted by Prairie Sky breads in Minot. This festival is originally born out of a play on Tolkien's hungry Hobbits, a joke about hosting a festival early enough in the day that everyone is home before 8, and a desire to create a family reunion feeling amongst performers, was hosted for the first time in July of 2021. Now the Prairie Sky Breads team is getting ready for the second year of festivities on July 29-31.

Co-organizers Jazmine Wolf-Schultz, Trevis Garjets, and Zach Schultz have been organizing festivals and DIY musical performances since college, helping to engage the community in the arts, and showcase local musicians. They were founding members of Pangea House Collective; a sort of community center focused around the music and art scene in Minot. The collective held the Why-Not Minot festival for 10 years before dissolving itself.

Prairie Sky Breads originally opened in 2020. The brainchild of Trevis Garjets, The Schultzes quickly jumped on board, seeing a great opportunity to create a DIY venue within the bakery space. Now, just a few short years after opening Prairie Sky Breads, the PSB team is ready to welcome the community back for another round of festivities. The three-day festival features performers from all across the state, expanding the lineup from the previous year.

Second Break-Fest changed the festival formula a bit, with the event starting earlier in the day to encourage members of the community who may not be invested in the arts to see what their state has to offer, over a cup of coffee and pastries. The acts that perform earlier in the day will play inside the bakery, with a shift to the alley behind the bakery in the afternoon for the louder bands. The PSB team always encourages new performers to join the event, with co-organizer Jazmine Wolf-Schultz saying that “this year we’ve turned away a grand total of 0 performers.”

Here are some of the things that set Second Break-Fest apart from other events. Staying true to its name, one of the biggest draws of the event is the food, prepared by PSB's chef, and Second Break-Fest's co-organizer Trevis Garjets. With this year's event theme being Rollapaloza, he's planning to prepare an endless supply of caramel and cinnamon rolls, as well as a french toast bar and fresh scones. There will also be an appearance by "The Roll Troll" , a sort of ambassador for the event, who will be giving out caramel and cinnamon rolls over the course of the day.

The musical side of the event begins at 6pm Friday the 29th, with Hot Desk opening the kick-off party. Many great regional bands will be showcased over the course of the event. Music starts at 9am Saturday and continues until 12 pm. The final day of music is Sunday, starting at 9am and ending at 1pm, with dynamic performances from With Iowa In Between, Opposition Out, and Vanity Plate.

With great food, music, and people this is a can't miss event! Tickets can be pre-ordered at https://www.prairieskybreads.com/product/second-breakfest-tickets/
