Festival Setting

The Porcupine Mountains Music Festival will be held at the Winter Sports Complex located within Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park. Temporary, canopy covered, stages will be set up at the base of the hill and several acres of open slope will be mowed and ready for your blankets and lawn chairs. Attendance is limited therefore a bad seat will not be found. Workshops will be conducted upon the event grounds and also inside the 20,000 square foot ski chalet. The restaurant located inside the ski chalet will offer a varied menu and will be open throughout the event.

Surrounding Area

Ontonagon is largest by acreage and is also one of the least densely populated counties in Michigan. We welcome you to our community and openly share our wondrous natural surroundings. More than 40 miles of Lake Superior shoreline, thousands of acres of state and federal land, a community lighthouse, copper mining and Native American history allow for fishing, boating, hiking, camping, and local tours and museums. Ontonagon County also boasts Michigan's and the Midwest's largest span of virgin hardwood maple/ hemlock forest located within the boundaries of Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park.
