Event description

Description


If you’re a fan of music, you will want to check out the national, regional, and Michigan acts performing on our stages. The huge main stage is the centerpiece of the grounds, surrounded by great shade trees and in close proximity to food and art vendors, campsites, and bathrooms. The Parlor Stage is an intimate indoor venue adjoined to an eatery where you can have breakfast, lunch, or dinner, or just come to enjoy the premium live music. The Barn Stage has everything from dances to children’s song writing to full bands. On Saturday and Sunday, workshops for musicians from beginner to advanced level are hosted in workshop areas around the grounds.
A juried art fair features artisans and their own original art and craftsmanship. Artists also host workshops, inviting you to come and learn how to make and create, so you can be the artist too.

The development of youth musical talent and involvement is fostered throughout the festival program, including a giveaway of guitars and other instruments for deserving young people, to help get them started. There are ongoing children’s activities including songwriting, open mike, workshops, and arts and crafts in the children’s craft barn.
The campgrounds are picturesque and beautiful, offering both rustic and some electric hookup for RVs. Shaded sites, sunny sites, flush and vault toilets, hot showers, clean facilities and of course lots of after-hours jamming. Quiet space can also be found, but for those that don’t want to miss anything, most campsites are close to all activities.

Nor-East’r is a family-friendly event much loved for its depth and diversity in musical talent and its workshops to learn directly from talented performers. The Oscoda County Fairgrounds is the perfect location for the festival — the site is very condensed, making it a favorite among those that enjoy going to the varied activities that the festival has to offer. Come and join our little world of music, art, fun, and community for a real weekend away.

We hope you'll come and play with us the second weekend in June.
