Music & Concerts

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 music, performing arts, and more in an idyllic outdoor & family friendly location.

After much consideration, the Glen Arbor Arts Center has decided to cancel the 2022 Dune Climb concert due to COVID-19 National park mandates.
