Gopherwood Concerts – Willy Porter House Concert – January 24, 2016

Gopherwood is pleased to present one of our favorite performers, Willy Porter with singing partner Carmen Nickerson, in a special House Concert. Willy Porter is perhaps best known as a down tuned six string wonder, but as a singer and a writer, and as a showman, he merits equal regard…

North American Snow Festival – February 4 – 7, 2016

The Cadillac North American Snow Festival (NASF) takes place during the first weekend of February every year. In fact it has been held in the picturesque Cadillac area for over 3 decades.

There are plenty of outdoor events like the snowmobile races, a polar dip, and an ice-fishing contest bringing you outside to take full advantage of our frozen lakes.

The festival hosts an abundance of indoor events as well, like the chili-cookoff, craft beer tasting, and Miss Cadillac NASF pageant are there for those that need a relief from the chilly weather!

We are sad to announce that the North American Snow Festival (NASF) will not be held this coming February as it has the past 35 years, HOWEVER, the good news is many of the individual events that have lived under the NASF umbrella for so many years are still planning to live on!
Please stay tuned to this page in coming weeks and months as we will be sharing information to keep you up to date on those individual events throughout the winter season.

More good news: this Facebook page will also continue on!
It will be used as a way to connect our fans with information about recreation on our local trail systems - a nod to the history from which this festival originally started (snowmobiling). So stay tuned for that as well 🙂

The following event details have been confirmed to date:
* Organizers of the annual Cadillac Area Silent Observer Chili Cook-off are rescheduling their competition for the same night as the Silent Observer hockey game at the Wexford Civic Center on Feb. 22nd, 2020. The format of this event will basically remain the same as it has in previous years.

* Pilgrims Village Fishing Shop will hold their annual fishing tournament on Saturday, February 1st, 2020. Contact them directly for details on registration.

* The Oasis Family Resource Center Polar Dip will also be scheduled as normal, on Feb. 1st. Anyone interested in learning more can call the Oasis office at (231) 775-7299.

* The Miss Cadillac NASF Pageant will continue, though it may renamed "Miss Cadillac" and resettled as a new event within another popular annual community festival moving forward.

More details will be shared as we learn them...
Thank you all for the support over the years, thousands of volunteer hours and lots of fun NASF memories - we sure had a good run! 💙❄️

Gopherwood Concerts – The Ragbirds – February 20, 2016

Hook-laden pop with a kaleidoscopic array of worldly influences, The Ragbirds exhibit a gleeful disregard for contemporary folk-rock convention.The five-piece project is clearly built around the multi-talented Erin Zindle, who is proficient in a variety of stringed instruments.

On October 9-10, 2015, Cadillac will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the KISS Homecoming at Cadillac High School. The legendary rock band KISS visited the small town of Cadillac in 1975 to connect with their football team and perform a concert in the gym, a story that has become iconic in Rock and Roll history.

This year’s homecoming coincides with the 120th Anniversary of Cadillac Viking football, so special festivities are being planned. The weekend will include: The homecoming football game, KISS-themed additions to the homecoming parade, a re-creation of the concert in the gym (featuring the World’s Best KISS Tribute Band – Mr. Speed), the unveiling of a permanent KISS monument, walking tours of KISStorical markers at significant spots around town, promotions by local businesses, and much more.

Joy Vandrie, Director of the Cadillac Area Visitors Bureau, expects the weekend will have great appeal to KISS fans. “This event will garner world wide attention and not only attract many visitors to Cadillac for this unique weekend, but also establish Cadillac as a permanent KISS tourism destination.”

The KISS Cadillac Homecoming is a collaborative event with Cadillac Area Festival & Events, Cadillac Area Public Schools, the Cadillac Viking Athletic Boosters, and the Cadillac Band Boosters. All NET proceeds from the event will benefit the two booster clubs.

A committee of local citizens and many volunteers are working hard to make this event a success. Committee member Jim Neff, the person responsible for bringing KISS to Cadillac in 1975, adds: “We have the total backing of KISS and their management at McGhee Entertainment. The goal for everyone involved is to do something positive for the City of Cadillac and the students at Cadillac High School.”

A schedule of events, ticket information for the KISS tribute concert featuring Mr. Speed, sponsorship opportunities, and ways for KISS fans to donate to the monument fund will be announced soon.

Continuing information updates will be on the event website at www.kisscadillac.com, on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/kisscadillac, on Twitter at https://twitter.com/kisscadillac, in the Cadillac News in print and on www.cadillacnews.com, and on www.neffzone.com/kiss. Event details and information about visiting Cadillac will be on the Cadillac Area Visitors Bureau website at www.cadillacmichigan.com.

We are sorry to report the Cadillac Festival of Races is cancelled for 2019. We have seen a steady decline in participants over the last 4-5 years and this year is no exception. Please know if you have already registered to run/bike/board or if your business has so generously sponsored, you will received a full refund. If anyone has questions, they can be directed to our email address cfr@dynamicptmichigan.com. ... See MoreSee Less

This post is getting an enormous amount of eyeballs and responses, which is heart warming, but why do the 3770 people that saw this not sign up and participate? It’s not like we don’t want to do the race...

A loss for our community. Longest running 10k in Michigan I believe. And one of, if not THE, first adventure type multi-sport events in Michigan. The venue, awards, race environment and support over the years have been some of the best I’ve personally experienced compared to numerous races I’ve participated in throughout the state. Thank you for the years of effort trying to maintain and grow this event in our community.

I so appreciate all you and your volunteers have done to bring quality racing to Cadillac. After doing about 40 of Cadillac‘s Labor Day races, it will seem different thiis year.

Absolutely loved this event! So sad to see it cancelled. I’ll miss the cool shirts too... it was great while it lasted and THANK YOU to all that made it happen over the years!! 🏃🇺🇸👣👣👣👣👣

Pamela Cryderman wtf

Very sorry to hear this news,thanks for this special event,will miss

JaneJerry Sinkel 🙁

Lena Marie Tammy Wenn 😞 😞 😞

I’m just gonna live in my race shirts and weep. It was great. I wish planning and volunteering was all cheaper and easier. I’ve always wished we could have a mud run or obstacle race or bubble run or foam run or foam glow or anything not around here. But I know that takes lots of 💰 and lots of people and of course participants. Really sad to see the longest running 10k go bye bye. But as a volunteer for this and many organizations, I totally understand.

My favorite race last year and my first overall win which I'll never forget. I really liked this race and sad to see it being cancelled but understand

Emily Woodcock

I’m so sad! I have run this race, since 2012, the year after I met my husband.

We think there are simply too many competing events in the region and interest has changed from races in our format to “color runs” mud runs and obstacle course racing. We’ve seen a very sharp decline in registrations and sponsorship, to the point we had to decide to either loose a lot of money or pull the plug. We are a non profit that has donated to worthy causes in our community over the years. It is really unfortunate to see it end after a very very long continuous “run”

I’m sorry to see it’s ended... But honestly today is the first time I’ve ever heard about the race,and I’ve lived in Cadillac for 8 years and lake city for 25 before that...I’m just wondering if maybe there wasn’t enough people aware of it? Because I’ve talked to many others that have also never known about it and they are also from the area...

I ran in this race the last two years, and won silver in my age group last year. I had a blast and will miss this event, but I also understand the reason for cancelling it. Thank you Gus, as well as all the volunteers, for putting on such a fun and exciting race. Hopefully, this event can make a comeback at some point.

This is exactly what happened to the “Ride for A Cause” for our local Oasis ...it use to bring in thousands for Oasis and after a decade dwindled to nothing ... unfortunate. In Wexford county when I looked at the non-profits we were trying to support back than it was 140!! A very generous community however it’s just a rotating movement of the same money - people can’t donate or participate in everything ..

I'm sad and disappointed, but understand the enormous amount of resources it takes for an event like this. I had planned to participate in the adventure tri, shame on me for not registering early to show support for this event. Thanks for the years of races!

I would love to do it but since back surgery I don’t run anymore....I’m sorry to see it go

Really? I'm surprised that it has declined so much.

Karen Shuboy Sullivan, gee I wonder why I quit this race 4 or 5 years ago....

That is sad. I have run this race once. I live in Owosso and we have a festival of races during our Curwood Festival. Less than 35 people finished the half this year. They may as well put a fork in that one as well. Each year the numbers go down.

You can’t even just put on a 5k or the 10k? This is the longest running 10k. That would be terrible to just end that like that

I was planning on signing up in the next few weeks. Great race! 😢

So sad
