The Spirit of the Woods Folk Festival is a free one day, family friendly event with music and crafts in a tree shaded park in the small town of Brethren, Michigan. Surrounded by the Manistee National Forest, near the lovely Manistee River and a few miles from the beaches of Lake Michigan, the festival is a great destination on its own or as part of an exploration of an area full of beauty and opportunities for adventure. Camping is not available on-site but there are many campgrounds nearby.

As for music, Spirit of the Woods is known for a rich variety of roots music, brought in from near and far. We have music on two stages, a regional craft fair, children's activities and a food vendor.

The festival is held on the third Saturday of June. This year that means June 15, noon to 8pm, in the Dickson Township Park, 14279 Coates Highway, Brethren, MI 49619.

Admission is free but we depend on your generous donations to keep the music flowing.

Also contributions to the Spirit of the Woods Music Association may be sent to the mailing address 11171 Kerry Rd., Brethren, MI 49619.

Always cherish the good times we have together and look forward to the time when we can sit together again under those lovely trees and listen to beautiful music. Until then, stay safe, help each other, support music and musicians and artists every chance you get.
