Stone Circle will be commemorating its 30th Anniversary this summer with two special evenings of celebrations on August 10 and 17. The festivities will be free on those nights and open to the public. Regular gatherings will begin on June 22, and continue every Saturday through Labor Day weekend.
A film crew from Barcelona, Spain will be shooting a film to observe the events and to document 30 years of poetry, storytelling and music at this unique outdoor venue. Stone Circle alumni from around the globe have been invited to perform. There will also be an open forum for new poets and performers, as time permits. All audience and participants will be required to sign a standard release form.
Writer/poet /filmmaker Patrick Pfister (patrickpfister.com) will direct and produce the documentary film. Students and instructor Steve Quick from Northwestern Michigan College’s Audio Technology program will be recording sound for the production.
Poet bard Terry Wooten will host the gatherings beginning at 9 PM around the fire. Sit under a canopy of stars perched on a boulder, or bring a blanket or chair to enjoy the ever-changing variety of entertainment that is woven throughout the evening.
Stone Circle is located ten miles north of Elk Rapids off US 31. Turn right onto Stone Circle Dr., and then follow the signs. Regular admission is $5/adults, $3/kids. For more information go to terry-wooten.com, 231-264-9467 [email protected]
