The Petoskey Music Art & Farm Expo (petoskeyexpo.com ) is a community fundraiser for bringing music and art to Northern Michigan schools. The expo is July 20, 21 and 22nd at the Emmet County Fairgrounds in Petoskey Michigan. Many schools have seen drastic cuts and cancellations of music and art programs, and the expo is intended to bring the community together to help make these opportunities available to children.

The expo will help raise funds to help buy instruments for the School of Music in Petoskey as well as to bring music activities to Northern Michigan schools. To help art programs in Northern Michigan, funds will provide art supplies and host activities at schools.

The expo is a festival to help raise awareness for keeping music and art vibrant in our public schools. The Petoskey Music Art & Farm Expo supports music by creating a venue for many local musicians, and supports art by hosting local artists, art making, and a marketplace. The expo invites artist young and old to come create art in an art-making and music-making environment. The expo celebrates the farming community in Northern Michigan and helps create awareness of farm-to-table, bee maintenance, organic , productive, and sustainable techniques.

Through the expo fundraiser, we hope to enable students in Northern Michigan schools to have opportunities to learn and experience music and art, which is so important to our Northern Michigan community. Please help support music and art.

See you at the Fairgrounds!
