Fairies and Forts summer celebration at Michigan Legacy Art Park


Celebrate a New Summer – Kick off the Summer Event!

June 25, 2022 – Free admission all day

This fun family tradition officially kicks off summer at Michigan Legacy Art Park!

10am-Noon
Art projects at Discovery Grove
Stories and songs by Luunappi!
Followed by a parade to the Fort for the annual flag raising, led by drummers!

Want to join?  Bring the whole family and join us at 10am at the trailhead on June 25th. We will have you head up to the amphitheater to where Luunappi will be set up, along with the art projects and more!

Luunappi is Finnish for a finger snap to the ear! Patrick Niemisto and Norm Wheeler present an interactive tag team of songs, stories, and poems, from Woody Guthrie and Bill Staines to Garrison Keillor and Dr. Seuss. Lunnappi creates a unique world of sneetches, goblins, skunks, hobos, pirates, grown-ups taking sauna, and kids cleaning dirty rooms. And everyone gets to participate!
