Music & Concerts

After much consideration, the Glen Arbor Arts Center has decided to cancel the 2021 Manitou Music season this summer, including the Dune Climb concert. A much-anticipated northern Michigan tradition, the Manitou Music Festival was started by the Glen Arbor Arts Center in 1991 and has brought top-tier musicians to Leelanau County for 30 years.

“The variety of musicians over the years and the community support has been amazing. We look forward to bringing some quality concerts in 2022,” said Executive Director Sarah Kime.

The GAAC’s concern about ongoing public health challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic dictate that we pause the concert series this year. Three free small pop-up music concerts will be held in conjunction with the 6ft Apart Art summer program. Check out our website for further information on dates and times.

SEE YOU IN 2022!

Founded in 1991 by members of the Glen Arbor Arts Center, Manitou Music takes place in the pastoral splendor of Leelanau County, in the Northwest corner of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.

This “Land of Delight” has long attracted artists, writers, musicians and vacationers with its dramatic settings of towering dunes, pure inland lakes, lush hardwood and pine forests and the majesty of Lake Michigan. Manitou Music 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!


Concerts will appear here when scheduled. Check back soon!
