Welcome to the 8th annual Leelanau UnCaged Music, Art and Food Festival.

We are a one-day celebration on the last Saturday of September each year. This year UnCaged will be on Saturday, September 26th, 2019 in Northport, Michigan.

Downtown Northport closes its main streets from 11:15AM to 10:00PM to host musical performers, dancers, artists, and food vendors. We begin at 11:15AM with a Water Blessing

A full day of music, dance, food, and art!

The event is originally inspired by John Cage, the famous American composer and philosopher, whose interpretation of rhythm and music was original in every way.  

Leelanau UnCaged is a day to celebrate and stimulate the senses! We hope you come and enjoy.

This event is brought to you by local volunteers who care very much for this county and are proud of the talents and resources the people, the land and water provide.

We could not do this without the many who give countless hours preparing for this rock'n out, wondrous day. Please take a moment during the festivities to thank a volunteer or two who will be helping to make this a memorable day.

There is no admission charge for the festival, but if you would like to make a donation you can send a check made out and sent to:

Your dollars are tax deductible, will help with expenses, and allow us to give you a day to remember. We'll also list your name and/or business logo on our sponsorship page, which is pretty cool. 

Thank you and see you Sept 26!
