Manitou Passage Golf Club – A Northern Michigan Adventure

Do you have questions about what's happening with water levels on the Great Lakes, now and in the months to come? We certainly do!

So we at Fishtown Preservation, in partnership with the Leland Township Library, invited Mark Breederland from Michigan Sea Grant to give us an update and an overview.

Mark has always been a great (and knowledgeable) friend to Fishtown, and we hope you find his presentation as eye-opening (and hopeful) as we have.

Traverse City Film Festival – July 30 – August 4, 2019

The 2019 Traverse City Film Festival will be held July 30 – August 4, 2019.

The Traverse City Film Festival was founded by Oscar winning filmmaker Michael Moore as a charitable, educational, nonprofit organization committed to showing “Just Great Movies” and helping to save one of America’s few indigenous art forms — the cinema.

The festival brings films and filmmakers from around the world to northern Michigan for the annual film festival in late July to early August, and also owns and operates a year-round, community-based, mission-driven art house movie theater, the State Theatre.

Suttons Bay Art Festival – August 3 – 4, 2019

Suttons Bay Art Festival

This annual art fair takes place at the beautiful Suttons Bay Marina Park on the first weekend of August (August 3 & 4th, 2019, Sat. 10am – 6pm, Sun. 10am – 5pm). One hundred artists along with community groups, a community library book sale, food vendors and a children’s area make this the perfect place to spend an art-filled weekend at the beach. Join us on Sunday morning for a pancake breakfast in the park (free to exhibiting artists). This is the second year Blackbird Arts has hosted the breakfast.

A committee of volunteers oversees the selection of visiting artists and the distribution of funds generated by the event. Thousands of dollars have been contributed to local arts-related education projects. These include music and dance performances, artist in residence programs and scholarships for local art students.

Come to Suttons Bay in August, participate – as an artist, as a shopper or as a volunteer. Join in the fun!
