Goals for the 5th Annual MCCU Twin Ports Bridge Festival:

•  Redefine bullying.

  Showcase the many great organizations, artisans, and innovators here in the Twin Ports. See what others are creating and how they’re helping our community.

•  Offering live music, workshops and activities for the whole family to celebrate our community.

  Welcoming EVERYONE to the Twin Ports. College students are back, elementary schools are in swing, middle and high schools are in session again. It’s a change of routine for many, and a perfect time to reunite with or get to know others in the Twin Ports.

  Honoring our greatest lake, and our commitment to economic, environmental and social sustainability around its western tip. This is the place on the map where so many great things come together!

  Making it all accessible for everyone, with FREE admission for all students and ages 18 & under! With 2,500 free tickets distributed through local nonprofits for others who want to attend.

A completely volunteer, not for profit festival.

In years past, the Twin Ports Bridge Festival has never been just another concert. It’s an experience people walk away from inspired, empowered, renewed with energy. It’s education. It’s fun for the whole family. It’s a pep rally for humanity. And it’s good for the soul. 

Regional Stewardship: When we remember our interconnectedness with all things, we are more inspired to take care of ourselves, one another and the planet. Bridge Fest endeavors to connect people within our region and around Lake Superior.

Building Community: Whether it’s our international, nationwide, state, local or even neighborhood community, the key to progress lies in respectful, productive relationships with others in that community.

The Twin Ports Bridge Festival devotes a day to celebrating each other, our diversity, and our togetherness to help ensure a brighter future for all of us. Let’s celebrate our differences as assets. Let’s create social synergy by sharing what is working in our lives and businesses that supports thriving communities. Let’s enjoy local food, crafters, brews and each other.

Sustainability: Calling all sustainable business leaders and change makers! Let’s hear from you! Tell us what is working or emerging that is sustainable in support of an economically, socially and environmentally thriving community and planet. Sharing those stories inspires innovation and allows for conscious evolution towards greater beauty, truth, love and equanimity.

Pure FUN! Enjoy some fantastic music~ dynamic speakers that motivate us to consider how we treat ourselves, others and the planet ~ engaging opportunities for people of all ages to be creative ~ share in Yoga ~ laugh~ dance ~ connect and be a part of something really AWESOME in a stellar location on the shore of the greatest lake.
