This year’s Thunder Bay Folk Festival will be held Sept. 27 to 29 at the Antique Tractor and Steam Engine Grounds on French Road in Alpena.

“We put on a wonderful festival where you can come and learn something new,” said TBFS President Mark Addington. “You can come and learn a little bit of yoga. You might learn to play an instrument. You might learn to make an instrument. We have a lot of really fun vendors coming through.”

He added that this year’s festival will feature about 30 musical acts across two stages, camping, demonstrations, and much more.

“We’ll have a drum kiva back in the woods,” he added. “And we’re going to have a silent auction, including the very sought-after first year T-shirt.”
