Arts, Theater & Entertainment
A fascinating mixture of agricultural, maritime, industrial and high-tech influences contribute to Northeast Michigan’s art, theater, and entertainment offerings. A history of logging and agriculture, fishermen and sailors, high-tech visionaries and ambitious entrepreneurs have shaped the landscape of our community. As a result of our history as a bustling hub during the logging era, Alpena has always included those things we’ve become accustomed to as a modern society.
Outdoor movies by the bay, concerts in the part, downtown street performers, jazz at a local restaurant, blues at a local pub, and outdoor art installations throughout the Alpena Area make a trip to the region welcoming and robust.
The past melds with the future as the community boasts two live theaters, four art galleries, and vibrant live music scene. Enjoy a day, or a month, exploring the Alpena area’s art, culture, and entertainment.
