The Hiawatha Music Co-op seeks to provide and promote traditional music and dance, to educate and inform society about traditional American music, and to encourage the appreciation of this music through our annual festival and various year-round events.

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

We have discontinued the email address info@hiawathamusic.org.
Our new email address is hiawathamc@gmail.com.
