Port Oneida Fair – August 9 – 10, 2019

Join us on August 9 & 10 for the 2019 Port Oneida Fair!

Each year near the beginning of August, you can take a step back in time at the Port Oneida Fair and experience life as it was in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Imagine the life of the pioneers as you help bale hay or watch a broom-maker at work. Learn about spinning, basket weaving, soap making, butter making, candle dipping, and fur trapping. Listen as park rangers and local history experts share the area’s history. Watch as teams of oxen and horses cut, load, and haul hay and artists and craftsmen demonstrate their skills.

The fair is held at 6 of the historic farmsteads in Port Oneida. Each farm has a variety of artists, crafts, food, and activities for visitors. Click on the farm names below to see what’s happening at each farm. A shuttle bus runs between the farms on a regular schedule during the fair, so you can park your car and easily get around to the different venues.

Dechow Farm
Kelderhouse Farm
Schoolhouse
Burfiend Barn
Olsen Farm
Thoreson Farm

Sky gazing will close out the two-day fair on Saturday, August 10 at the Thoreson Farm. We will be looking at the sun from 4:00 pm until 6:00 pm and at the night sky from 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm. Join park rangers and the Grand Traverse Astronomical Society (GTAS) to experience a form of recreation that has been enjoyed by many generations and continues today. GTAS members share their telescopes and knowledge while viewing Mars, Saturn, and the Perseid meteor shower. Learn about astronomy as it was in the 1900s. Remember to bring a flashlight for the walk back to your car.

Are you an artist who has created work in or of the Port Oneida area? We are always looking for submission for our Port Oneida Fair poster.

The Port Oneida Fair is presented by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in partnership with Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear. To learn more about how you can help support the park, visit www.phsb.org.

The Northport Dog Parade is Saturday, August 8, 2020 and we are begging for a THEME! Do you have a terrific idea for one? Please email Grand Marshall Sarah Eggert (speggert@sbcglobal.net) or DM us here with a theme idea (colorful and fun with a pun, please!). Interested in helping out with the parade this year? We would love that too - email or DM to let us know if you want to get involved 🐾🐾🐾🐾 ... See MoreSee Less

Flea Circus (or Cirque du SoLeelanau)

Fiddler on the Woof! (Broadway theme)

In light of everyone being captive in their homes this year it should be re-cast as “The Dog Owner Parade” sponsored by the cats who will stay at home and finally get some peace!

Roxanne Werly I'll bet you could come up with a great theme and you'll have to have your babies in the parade this year 🙂

Kevin Murphy has one. "Doggy Kong." Includes all video game characters.

A Dr. Who theme would be fantastic!

Based on all of the movie watching with the family lately, I want to submit an idea: Indiana Bones: Raiders of the Lost Bark!

Disco Pawty!

Su-paw Heroes!

Mardi Paws!

Jurassic Bark 🦖 🐾

A Day in the (dog) Park.

Woofs of the loom...instead of fruit of the loom... dogs in undies... Captain Underpants

Space Dogs. Could go astronaut or alien.

A zombie theme? Armadogdon

Ford Vs Furry

Celebridogs and Pupparazzi

Dog Tired

Volks-Waggin

Jeff Anderson says Caddy Shack?

Leelanau UnCaged
90 artists, 32+ musical and dance performances
12+ food trucks, vendors, and great local restaurants
Annual attendance over 7,000 and it’s FREE

Welcome to the 8th annual Leelanau UnCaged Music, Art and Food Festival.

We are a one-day celebration on the last Saturday of September each year. This year UnCaged will be on Saturday, September 26th, 2019 in Northport, Michigan.

A full day of music, dance, food, and art!
