Festival Program Advertising

The Hiawatha Festival program guide represents an excellent advertising opportunity for any business. Hiawatha program advertisers reach almost 4,000 people who converge at Tourist Park in Marquette for a family weekend filled with traditional music, dance and artistry.

Our 39th Annual Festival is slated for July 21-23, 2017.

Our advertisers have excellent exposure as Festival-goers refer to this program guide throughout the weekend. Some keep it as a souvenir because it contains performer photos and bios, as well as pictures from the previous Festival. Festival-goers receive the program as part of their admission. We do not sell the program.

There’s a spot for you in the Hiawatha program. If you have any questions, please feel welcome to call us at 906-226-8575. Our office hours are noon-6 p.m., Tuesdays and Wednesdays. You may also email us at We check our voicemail and email messages throughout the week.

Thank you for your consideration. We’ll look forward to hearing from you!
