Project North is about preserving the environment. We want to be on the cutting edge of sustainable festivals.

In support of that, attendees can expect to be immersed in environmentally conscious education and sustainable practices including: complying with a single-use plastic ban, using biodegradable food containers and utensils, properly disposing of food and drink waste to prepare for composting, refilling reusable water bottles, and much more.

Happening in the heart of downtown Rhinelander, the Project North EcoVillage welcomes individuals, organizations, and businesses that would like to promote their sustainability practices.  Check back soon for more information and to register.


The Wisconsin Department of Tourism proudly recognizes Project North through the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce as a certified member of its Travel Green Wisconsin program. With a longstanding conservation and environmental legacy, this program furthers Wisconsin’s commitment to sustainability.  Throughout the festival, Project North will be promoting and using sustainable and environmentally friendly practices.


Another important aspect of this immersion is Project North’s dedication to environmentally conscious education. The weekend will welcome experts in sustainable practices to share their knowledge through demonstrations, presentations and informational booths.
