The Alma Music & Arts Festival has been entertaining crowds at the Alma beach and marina since 2002. Live music over the years has included The Riverbenders, String Ties, Small Potatoes, Rusty Swingset, The Ditchlilies, Three Mississippi, The Old Fashioneds, Sue Orfield & Acoustihoo, and others! Also, over 40 artist & food booths dot the riverside park. Enjoy barbeque chicken, brats, fruit smoothies, fresh crepes, sweet carmel corn, and other tasty treats. Artists and crafters of all kinds exhibit their creations including paintings, pottery, jewelry, birdhouses, lawn ornaments, knit sweaters and apparel, quilts and more! Special guest, Kenny Salway, has returned for many years to tell his famous river tales. Another special guest, Public Radio Personality Al Ross, will be bringing a smile to your face this year. Pony rides, face painting and crafts entertain children, along with the beach and playground equipment. Join us for a fun afternoon of entertainment, shopping, eating and relaxation. The Alma Music & Arts Festival is held on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend each year. Find more details on Facebook!
