Spring 2016 marks the the 5th annual Sweet Earth Arts & Music Festival.... Yes, it is the big number 5 and we couldn’t be more excited to share in the fun with you!

Sweet Earth Arts and Music Festival is an all inclusive Earth Day celebration for our dynamic Northern Michigan community. It is a means of communicating how to get involved with a multitude of environmental issues locally and globally through a dialogue with music, art and interactive activities. .

Oh Brother Big SisterEach year we invite regionally based musicians to perform at the celebration. This year’s lineup includes Oh Brother Big Sister (Frederic), The Charlie Millard Band (Alanson), The Drinkard Sisters (Detroit), Third Coast Kings (Detroit) and The Ragbirds (Ann Arbor). Stay tuned for announcements of other exciting performers including local spoken word artists and more!

In case you need a break from dancing, we also have a variety of hands-on activities for people and children of all ages including a science corner for kids, seed-ball making, a compost worm petting zoo, an arts and crafts table using recyclable materials, and more! And returning for the second year in a row is our Sweet Earth Artist Market featuring some of the many talented artisans in Northern Michigan.

Third Coast KingsSweet Earth is a celebration filled with creative expression that plants the seed of environmental consciousness and provides the resources to help it grow. Because of all of the amazing support in past years from the community, this year's festival will take place at the Hagerty Center on NMC’s Great Lakes Campus where there will be more space for extra celebration and fun -- and a huge bonus, it overlooks the beautiful West Bay!
