SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

As the Arts and Culture Alliance of Manistee County, we invite you to check out what's happening in our area. There are many historical museums and markers to see, along with informational, self-guided tours.  Our area is rich with musical culture, and in the summer there are many opportunities to check out live music all week long. These concerts take place in beautiful settings like 1st Street Beach in Manistee, the Asiala Log Cabin in Kaleva, the Jaycees Bandshell on the river in Manistee and in the serenely wooded Dickson Township Park. Check out everything we have to offer!

Due to COVID-19 State of Michigan Stay At Home Order - these events and hours are subject to change until further notice.
