There are great events and festivals happening year round in the Western Upper Peninsula.
Art in the Miners Park 2017 is an outdoor/public art exhibition on a one mile walking loop in Ironwood’s Miners Memorial Heritage Park opening June 24th, 2017.
Last year, Art in the Miners Park hosted approximately 2,000 visitors and awarded $2500 in prizes.
This year, we’re adding a Juried Award to the popular People’s Choice award.
Our guidelines are pretty simple: family & environmentally friendly art, original art or inspired art with permission, and able to withstand weeks of outdoors weather.
