Traditional Arts Weekend (formerly known as Dance Camp) is an annual event held over the Memorial Day weekend on the Wheatland Festival grounds near Remus, Michigan. The Community Education committee provides over 80 workshops in traditional forms of dance, music, crafts, vocal and instrument instruction to which participants might not otherwise be exposed. Free primitive camping for participants. Food is available to purchase on site. Traditional Arts Weekend has become a very popular Wheatland event for those seeking more personal instruction.

Participants can register for the entire weekend, a single day, or workshop. Some workshops have limited participation.  There are evening performances and dances which include Square, Contra, Swing and Cajun.

Gates open at 3 o’clock on Friday afternoon!
