The Hiawatha Festival is the only event of its size and scope in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Without Hiawatha, local performers and fans would have to travel between four and six hours to the nearest festivals of its size and type.

The Festival is held the next-to-last FULL weekend in July, at the Marquette, Mich., Tourist Park.

Each year's event features traditional-music styles that include bluegrass, old-time, Cajun, Celtic, acoustic blues and folk - including singer/songwriters - and dance. Mainstage acts include nationally known performers as well as regional and local favorites.

The Festival also has special areas for children and teens with organized activities and performances designed for those age groups.

For more information about performing or vending at the Hiawatha Festival, please see the related links at right.
