The Keweenaw Peninsula has a creative spirit that permeates every inch of our land and water. You will feel it in the Native American woven baskets, the hammered copper jewelry, on the pages of poetry written along Lake Superior’s shore. It is on the stages where the burning passions of musicians and performers ignite your own. Look for who we are in the books, the paintings, the photographs, the fiber and the arts that we proudly display in our galleries, art centers, theaters, and fairs. Then sit awhile and let your creativity fill our space.

  • Stop in the Calumet Arts District each First Friday to look at the newest installations. This mix of galleries and working studios in downtown Calumet welcomes visitors all year round but on the First Friday hosts open houses to showcase the artists’ newest work.
  • Experience a world-class live performance at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. Performances include national- and University-produced theatre, jazz, orchestra, symphonic bands, choral music, dance, and film, as well as visual art exhibitions and installations. Don’t miss the 41 North Film Festival which runs October 31-November 3, 2019.
  • Find beautiful art for your home, office or gifts at art fairs in Calumet at the end of June, Eagle Harbor during the second weekend of August and Copper Harbor in mid-August.
  • Take a walking tour of Houghton’s street art. The City of Houghton is filled with public murals, creatively painted crosswalks, historic statutes and more! Take a stroll along the waterfront among vibrant pieces of public art decorating the cityscape.
  • See a movie, a play or a concert at the historic Calumet Theatre. Ever since it opened in 1900 this former opera house has brought legends to the stage. The legacy continues.
  • Listen to regional talent pour out the music at Houghton’s Bonfire Bar & Grill.
  • Be wowed by our annual music festivals: Pine Mountain Music Festival in mid- through late-June (multiple sites), Calumet’s Dam Jam Festival in late June and the Allouez Farm Block Fest in late July.
