A BIG THANK YOU to so many for making the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival a success – we had a great time and heard so much good music over the weekend, we’re going to have to do it again….August 23, 24 & 25, 2019

THANK YOU to the amazing performers that travelled to our little corner of the world to play their great music for us, and those who live in our own back yard. You inspired us, made us laugh, made us dance, and we will never forget your time on our stages.

THANK YOU to the Friends of the Porkies, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Gogebic Community College, Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, Arts Midwest Touring Fund, National Endowment for the Arts, Major sponsors: Porcupine Mountains Visitors & Convention Bureau, WUPY FM, WOLV FM, and the Reader Weekly, All additional Sponsors, Donors, and Advertisers. Your support makes all the difference and we hope that our attendees will remember to support you year long in return.

THANK YOU to our amazing crew leaders and the 130 volunteers. You once again went over and above to do a great job and it really showed. Please get some much needed rest, and know the important role you play in making this festival happen each year.

THANK YOU to Doug and Mary of Armadillo Sounds, and to Tom and Jason from Festival Productions, Gerry Kiipola and to Superior Events and Rentals for helping us with our staging needs.

THANK YOU to our amazing audience. Your enthusiasm, comments, thumbs up, and embracing of this Festival as being something special means everything to us and it keeps us going when we are so tired. The organizing committee will be reviewing your surveys and will be meeting the last Wednesday in September to discuss this year’s festival. Your feedback is helpful and appreciated.

Thank you. Yup. Thank you. xoxo

This Porkie's bear made his appearance this week. Watch for sows with cubs this time of the year and give them plenty of room. #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #blackbear #ursusamericanus ... See MoreSee Less

Emily Scott Robinson, I just discovered you and now you're coming to my neck of the woods!!!

Looks amazing as usual!

Very nice to see some Iowa talent, Elizabeth Moen, on the list. Maybe this will be the start of an influx of Iowa folks heading your way for the festival. It is a great venue, amazingly beautiful country, and some super kind people. Love it!

Going to be another GREAT Festival! Get your tickets, mark your calendars.... come to the Porcupine Mountains Music Festival! While you're here visit scenic Lake of the Clouds, it's right up the road. Lake Superior is across the road. Stop and go on a Picture Rocks Cruise....a trip to remember! Well worth the ride....(plus pasties!!!)

Union Bay beach this week has been great for rock picking as the ice recedes. With any luck, you may find a precious agate or majestic sunset. #spring #agates #midnr #miparks #puremichigan #beachbums ... See MoreSee Less
