Over 40 bands will make their way to the Porcupine Mountains this weekend playing anything from blues to folk to bluegrass.
It's the tenth annual Porcupine Mountains Music Festival presented by the "Friends of the Porkies." Bands from the region, Virginia, California, Texas, and even all the way from Sweden will perform on one of the festival's three stages at the Porkies Winter Complex. There will a children's performance on Sunday for kids attending the festival to participate in, and attendees can take a ride in the ski hill chair lift as well. Organizers say the event keeps getting bigger and better every year.
"Every year somebody comes and the next year they come back and they bring a friend because it's such a good experience," says Cheryl Sundberg, festival director. "We know we're treating them right when we hear that, and the performers are the same way: they come, they all want to come back."
Tickets are $35 per day or $90 for all three days. Special pricing for children and seniors is available at the festival ticket booth.
