It's the Sunrise Solstice Art & Music Festival, June 14th & 15th in Tawas City at Shoreline Park on beautiful Tawas Bay!  The Sunrise Solstice Art and Music Festival came into existence in the fall of 2017. It was the brainchild of a group of dedicated teachers at Tawas Area Schools as a means to support the Fine Arts Department of the school both conceptually and monetarily. The vision was to provide a festival that celebrated visual and musical artists. We believe that the best way to garner support for the arts is to provide our community a venue to experience the benefits of the arts in person. If people have an enjoyable experience with the arts, they are more likely to see the value and support them in their schools. It was also important to provide an opportunity for students and community members to display their artistry.

 

Activities/events will include:

  • Art Alfresco 6am-5pm (Awards @9pm)
  • Art Classes & Open Canvas 11am-3pm
  • Music 11am-9pm
  • Market Place 10am-5pm
  • Food Trucks 7am-9pm
  • Yoga Sessions 6am, 1pm & 3pm
  • Cardio Drumming 9 & 9:30am
  • Sound Healing Group Sessions 11am, 12:30pm, 2pm & 3:30pm
  • Chalk Around the Block 10am-5pm
  • Face Painting 10am-5pm
  • Fairy Garden 10am-5pm
  • Community Canvas 10am-5pm
  • Old Mackinaw Boat Rides (Row Boat) w/Heritage Coast Sailing & Rowing and more!

Live music, an art alfresco competition, mini-art sessions, yoga on the beach, sound-healing sessions, fairy house building, face-painting and more!

 

Here are some of the highlights that you need to know. 

 

Friday, June 14th
We are kicking off the art festival with this year's Art Stroll on Friday, June 14th in downtown East Tawas, MI. The Art Stroll is an annual event put on by the Tawas Bay Art Gallery and this year we are working together to bring art and music all weekend long!

 

Saturday, June 15th 6am-9pm
Yoga will begin at 6am and last year it was AH-MAZING. We suggest bringing a towel rather than a mat -- easier to clean!

 

We have 13+ artists who will be creating their artwork throughout the day in different areas around Iosco County. Be sure to stop by the main station and ask where they will be located so you can stop by and see them in action!

 

Music will begin at 11am and you'll want to bring your lawn chair or a blanket to enjoy!! Feel free to bring a cooler along. Activities for the kids will be going pretty much from 10am-5pm so come bring the family!

 

Tickets for all activities can be purchased online (there is an additional fee for online ticket purchases) as well as at the ticket tent! We are and will be accepting donations throughout the day as well that will be used for bringing fun art and music activities to our students at Tawas Area Schools.

The Car Show the whole family has been waiting for. What better way

to celebrate Father's Day with dad? Spend the day with dad, but of

course dad wouldn't be dad without the kids and Mom. We realize

that without today's youth taking interest in these classic machines

they could become a thing of the past. We encourage you to bring a

kid to the show. Share the interest and experience with them. Of

course we realize kids are kids and that is why there will be plenty there for them to do

throughout the day to prevent boredom. From kids games, contests, a swap meet and

vendors  for Mom too. This show is  about celebrating... celebrating beautiful vintage

automobiles, timeless feel good music, great games, fun people and the celebration of

an era.  An era when things were a little more simple and technology was not so controlling.

Please have your cameras ready, enjoy the sunshine and create classic memories with

all of us at the Pops In The Past Vintage Car Show.
