Founded in 1991 by members of the Glen Arbor Art Association, the Manitou Music Festival takes place in the pastoral splendor of Leelanau County, in the Northwest corner of Michigan's Lower Peninsula.
The Manitou Music Festival presents exciting and diverse concerts featuring national and regional performers of classical, jazz, and folk music
in idyllic outdoor & family friendly locations. See you this summer in Glen Arbor!
The Glen Arbor Art Association welcomes you to Michigan's Leelanau County, a vacation paradise built around the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore on Lake Michigan in the northwest corner of the Lower Peninsula. The village of Glen Arbor nestles in the middle of the park, a haven for visitors and vacationers from throughout the United States. Gorgeous lakes, towering sand dunes and stunning views of Lake Michigan are everywhere. Not surprisingly, artists, writers and musicians find their way to the area to live and work.
Each summer the Art Association sponsors an acclaimed music festival, a full schedule of art classes for children and workshops for adults, an artist-in-residence program, a migrant children's program, a magazine for poets and essayists, and many other activities.
