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

Porcupine Mountains Music Festival

The Bear Mark Productions team just returned home after a whirlwind of a week in New Orleans for the 2020 Folk Alliance International Conference celebrating the folk music industry, and representing our home state of Michigan.

In duel collaboration with Blissfest Music Organization we had the opportunity to co-host a set of four "Michigan Rooms" that consisted of two private showcase rooms that invited EIGHTEEN different artists per night for FOUR nights! That is an amazing 72 performers in four days!

We would not have been able to pull off a feat this massive without the help of many volunteers, artists, sponsorship's, and product donations. THANK YOU ALL for being such a vital part of the Michigan Music scene and supporting local creative endeavors!

Blissfest Music Organization Founders Brewing Co., The Ark - Ann Arbor, Wheatland Music Organization, Petoskey Brewing, Earthwork Harvest Gathering, Hiawatha Music Festival, Beaver Island Music Festival, 20 Monroe Live, St. Andrews Hall, Elderly Instruments, Buttermilk Jamboree, Porcupine Mountains Music Festival, GypsyVodka, Grain Train Natural Foods Market, La Fiesta Chip Co, Mabs' Atomic Mustard, Sturgeon River Pottery, and Geezers Hot Sauce!

Keep an eye out for more photos from Folk Alliance to come!
