AuSable Valley Nor-East’r Association of Folk is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of creative and performance arts in north east Michigan with special emphasis on traditional. We define “North East Michigan” as I-75 & M-55 north & east to Lake Huron.
On the second weekend of June, the Nor-East’r Music & Art Festival takes place at the Oscoda County Fairgrounds: three straight days of eclectic music and art, food, dancing, camping, jamming, drumming, and some of the greatest parkin’ lot pickin’ in the state. Three stages host continuous music morning to night, ranging from blues to bluegrass, country to new age, jam bands, old-time, Celtic, folk, and even a little rock. Artists offer varied original work from woodcarving to glass work, jewelry to stonework, basket-making, fiber art, photography, and of course, the indispensable festival tie-dye. All this and more makes Nor-East’r one of Michigan’s best festival experiences.
