MARQUETTE – The Hiawatha Music Co-op will once again bring top-quality traditional American music and dance to Marquette for its 36th annual Hiawatha Traditional Music Festival set for July 18-20 at the Marquette Tourist Park.

Ticket, camping tags, and parking passes will be sold from noon to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday at the Hiawatha Music Co-op office at 129 W. Baraga Ave, Suite B.

The festival will kick off with the Friday-night dance, starting at 7 p.m., featuring foot stomping bands and lively dancing.

In addition, most mainstage performers, as well as local and regional musicians, will present small workshops throughout Saturday and Sunday.

In the Teen Scene, Hiawatha’s younger set will enjoy dance and workshop appearances by the return of Dragon Wagon and, new to Hiawatha Teen Scene, Tin Can Gin. Crafts and other activities designed for teens will also be featured.

The youngest festival-goers will enjoy a busy line-up in the Children’s Area, with child-friendly crafts, workshops, music and stories, the Maypole and the Sunday-afternoon Kids Parade to the main stage.
