Be there with us as MNA’s summer music festivals make their triumphant return, coming together as a single spectacular event! Orton-Front will combine the flavors and traditions of both the Marquette Waterfront Festival and Orton Park Festival on the weekend that is traditionally Orton’s — August 26-29th.


Orton-Front kicks off with two nights of Cycropia Aerial Dance and family entertainment at Orton Park. Then the festival hops to Yahara Place Park for two stages featuring some of the very best local bands and national touring acts. Expect vendors from favorite local restaurants, craft beer and wine, kids’ games, and a few surprising new festival features.


Note: This festival will only run if it can be in full compliance with public health directives and without significant restrictions for attendees. So, mask up, distance, and get your vaccine when it’s your turn!
