Cabin Fever Days

The Beaumier U.P. Heritage Center is proud to announce the beginning of the inaugural Cabin Fever Days to be held in Marquette from January 25 through March 22.   This two month long series of cultural events celebrating the culture of the Upper Peninsula will begin with the Great Yooper Folk Dance on January 25 in the Great Lakes Rooms of the Don H. Bottum University Center. 

The Cabin Fever Days is being funded in party by a Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs Arts Minigrant administered through the Central Upper Peninsula Planning and Development Regional Commission.   The idea behind the series of events is to encourage people in the Upper Peninsula to get out and enjoy cultural events in their community during the cold and weather challenging winter months.  

Here is a list of upcoming events.  More will be added in the coming weeks.  If you'd like to get updates on Facebook, like us at this link.
