Dirt Fest is an all inclusive Earth Day celebration for our dynamic Northern Michigan community. It is a means of communicating how to get involved with a multitude of environmental issues, both locally and globally, through a dialogue with music, art and interactive workshops.
Dirt Fest is a celebration filled with creative expression that plants the seed of environmental consciousness and provides the resources to help it grow.
