Festival of the Arts - Annually February 1 - February 28

The Festival of the Arts is an annual series of entertainment, educational and cultural events offered daily throughout February in Big Rapids. Provided through a partnership between Ferris State University and the Big Rapids community, the Festival features a variety of art, film and music presentations, as well as interactive workshops and contests.

Beat the winter blues with a month-long celebration of art, music, dance, literature and more!

All Events are held in Big Rapids. Admission to most events is FREE; however, some require advanced registration or ticket purchase.

FSU's Fine Art Gallery exhibit, Hateful Things and More, (p. 12) will be on display through Saturday, February 23, not February 28 as noted in the book. In addition, there will be a reception for the exhibit on Friday, Feb. 15 from 5 - 7pm at the FSU Fine Art Gallery, featuring a presentation by Dr. David Pilgrim, titled A Little Room With a Big Purpose, at 5:30.
