Emberlight Festival

Bringing world-class art and entertainment to the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan every summer! The inaugural Emberlight Festival will be August 26 – September 5, 2021.

Over the last two years, Theatre North has been developing plans with Miles Mykkanen to create an annual festival celebrating the fine arts.

The Emberlight Festival will highlight music, the visual arts, film, theatre, dance, and creative writing. More details regarding specific programming for the 2021 festival will be announced as the dat approaches.

“My goal is to create a destination in the Western Upper Peninsula for audiences to see great talent from Broadway and Hollywood next to the best of our region’s local artists,” Mykkanen said.

The safety and health of our community is at the forefront of the festival’s plans. The 2021 Emberlight Festival will be completely outdoors and follow all current guidelines from the CDC and local health departments.

Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to Theatre North to help launch the Emberlight Festival. Emberlight Festival is sponsored by Theatre North, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. All gifts are tax-deductible.
