The Radio Waves Music Festival is an annual, community outreach event and has become a tradition for visitors, area residents, and performing musicians. Several vendors will be on-site with food/beverages. Outside food and beverages are accepted on the grounds as well. Some chairs are provided under the tent, but feel free to bring your own. This is a kid-friendly event, and kids 12 and under will be given prizes at the gate. A note that your well-behaved pets are welcome – but please make sure they’re on a leash at all times.

Radio Waves is made possible in part with funding from the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, and is supported by a grant from Visit Cook County, Gunflint Trail Association and the Grand Marais Area Tourism Association.
