Each year’s main-stage line-up can include bluegrass, old-time, Cajun, Celtic, acoustic blues, Gospel, etc. The line-up includes national, regional and local performers, and singer/songwriters are often featured.

An arts and craft show sponsored by The Hiawatha Music Co-op is held in conjunction with the Festival. Many of the art and craft vendors sell earth-friendly items. The Hiawatha Festival began in 1979 in Champion, Michigan.

Since 1984, the Festival venue has been the city-owned Marquette Tourist Park, where camping (up to 1,000 units) is available for Festival-goers.

Our regular office hours are Tuesday and Wednesday, 12 to 6pm. Hours increase as we near the Festival.
