Arts & Entertainment

For all of its small-town charm, Traverse City possesses plenty of big-city sophistication – thanks in large part to its established and thriving arts community. In addition to performing arts, the area is overflowing with fine artists and artisans -- many of whom display their work at local shops and museums, and at local art fairs throughout the region.

The Traverse Symphony Orchestra -- often performing in the beautifully restored City Opera House -- is easily on par with orchestras from large metropolitan areas.  The renowned Interlochen Center for the Arts attracts internationally acclaimed artists; each summer concert-goers can enjoy a tailgate picnic before heading into the open-air 4,000-seat amphitheatre overlooking Green Lake to enjoy the likes of Tony Bennett, Norah Jones, Bonnie Raitt and Josh Groban.
