From its humble origins as a spontaneous jam session, to its growth as part of the Hibbing Area Chamber of Commerce, to its current status as a fast growing, independent community arts organization, Dylan Days seeks to enhance the arts community in Northern Minnesota in addition to conducting these annual events. Dylan Days works with many community partners, including schools, the city, the chamber of commerce and other artistic groups. We operate off the advertising revenue for our annual publication, "Talkin' Blues," the program and literary journal of Dylan Days.
