What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Live Opera, Farmers Market, Snowmobile Safari

With the turn of the new year, there are new ways you can enjoy our area and all it has to offer in the wintertime.

Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association shares details on What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.

Live Opera Performance

Visit the Ramsdell Regional Center for the Arts in Manistee to watch a live opera performance transmitted in high-definition, directly from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City.

Built in 1903, the historic charm of the Ramsdell Theatre makes it the perfect setting for enjoying one of these classic operas.

Upcoming live streaming shows include “Wozzeck” on January 11, and “Porgy and Bess” on February 3.

Boyne City Farmers Market

Shake off the winter woes by heading to the Boyne City Farmers Market, held indoors every Saturday in the winter from 9 a.m. until noon, inside of Boyne City Hall.

You’ll find locally-grown and made delicacies from within a 30-mile radius, such as seasonal fruits and vegetables; gourmet preserves and baked goods; honey & maple syrup; meat, poultry and eggs; cut flowers; a juried hand-crafted section… And much more!

Annual Moose Jaw Snowmobile Safari

This January marks the 55th anniversary of the Annual Moose Jaw Snowmobile Safari, a 30-mile ride from Harbor Springs to Larks Lake.

In honor of that milestone, the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society invites you to join them on Thursday, January 16, to hear Tom Hoffman talk about the history of the Moose Jaw.

Founded in 1965, the snowmobile ride is one of the oldest continually run rides in the country

Hoffman will be joined by other long-time snowmobilers who will share photographs, memories, and more.

Reservations are strongly encouraged and can be made by calling the harbor springs area historical society.
