Arts, Culture & Heritage

A fascinating mixture of agricultural, maritime, industrial and high-tech influences contribute to Northeast Michigan’s cultural heritage. A history of logging and agriculture, fishermen and sailors, high-tech visionaries and ambitious entrepreneurs have shaped the landscape of our community.

Thunder Bay Theater

The year-round Thunder Bay Theater produces a number of live stage performances featuring local talent as well as in-house professionals.

The area’s cultural and historical character was also formed by a unique amalgamation of maritime, agricultural and industrial influences. The past melds with the future as the community boasts two live theaters, two art galleries, two museum heritage centers, and vibrant live music scene. Enjoy a day or a month exploring the Alpena area’s art, culture, and heritage.
