The Arts will be celebrated in Boyne City at the 5th annual SOBO Arts Festival on June 27 and June 28.
Located in the heart of Boyne City’s historic and vibrant downtown, the SOBO Arts Festival provides high quality cultural experiences for festival patrons and attracts artists from all over the region representing all fine arts.
The festival kicks-off on Friday June 27, with the “Stroll the Streets” from 6 to 9 p.m., showcasing musical performances, family and children’s activities, culminating with an outdoor concert featuring the Bay Area Big Band.
The 17-member band builds on a proud tradition of such historical bands as Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Count Basie and Glenn Miller and creates a musical experience not to be missed.
It promises to be a great evening for dancing in the streets.
On Saturday, activities move to nearby Peninsula Beach, a beautiful park with ample lawn and open space on the shore of Lake Charlevoix, for the SOBO Arts Festival. Events for children, artist demonstrations and workshops blend with the juried art fair to create a true celebration of the arts.
In addition to interesting and creative art and cultural experiences, the festival will also feature the local culinary arts with food trucks along with other outstanding food vendors.
All festival activities are free of charge to patrons.
This is a weekend event the entire family will enjoy!
