Countdown to Project North 2021


Project North Festival, Sept. 10-12, 2021 Rhinelander, WI

On September 10-12, 2021, Project North will return to Rhinelander in venues in downtown Rhinelander, Wisconsin. For the long weekend, the community will be engulfed with great live music, interactive art, and a commitment to environmentally conscious education and practices.

The goal of Project North Festival is to hold a dynamic festival that focuses on music, art, and the environment and brings tourists and locals to downtown Rhinelander to showcase Rhinelander’s artistic community, appreciation for its captivating Northwoods environment, and its contagious community cultural development efforts.

This event serves as a catalyst in propelling Rhinelander’s stance as a progressive community that is dedicated to providing resources and support to local, national and international artists, musicians, and sustainability advocates.
