From Thursday, June 19th to Saturday, June 21st , the Big Ticket Festival will bring faith-based musicians and fun to the Otsego County fairgrounds in Gaylord.  Now in its 9th year, the Big Ticket Festival has hosted thousands of Northern Michigan festival-goers during previous editions of the event.

The festival will be headlined by the following performers and guests:

  • Jep and Jessica Robertson, cast members of A&E’s Duck Dynasty
  • Country duo Thompson Square
  • Motivational speaker Nick Vujicic
  • Dozens of national and independent Christian musicians

Aside from the music performances, festival attendees can enjoy an inflatable carnival, petting zoo and kids’ karaoke, music and dancing, and many worship- and faith-based activities.

The Big Ticket Festival is organized by White Stone Project, a non-profit organization based in Gaylord; White Stone Project has partnered with international orphan-advocacy group World Orphans—which aims to provide housing relief for orphans across the globe—to produce the festival.
