Cultural & Dance Stage

You'll find loads of treasures on this Stage. Everything from musicians to storytellers and lots of dance performances. Plus you can participate in Ceili Dance Workshops too!

Join us Friday evening at 6:45 pm for a Hooley in the Dance Tent! You’ll have the chance to learn traditional Ceili (Kay-lee) dancing when our volunteers give you a quick lesson! NEW in 2013- The first ever Muskegon Highland Games where you can watch competitors take part in hammer, sheaf and the popular caber toss! Friday will feature a demonstration at 7 pm and competitions on Saturday.
