January 25-February 5, 2023

The Great Northern celebrates our cold, creative winters through programming that invigorates mind and body. In an era of changing climate that threatens our signature season, we seek to create community, inspire action, and share the resilient spirit of the North with the world.

Music & Performance: Original work and world premieres by visionary local, national, and international artists.

Outdoor Active: We promote a healthy, active, outdoor lifestyle by encouraging individuals to get outside and enjoy all the season has to offer.

Food & Drink: Curated experiences focused on craft, regionality, and seasonality.

Ideas / Climate: Keynote conversations, live podcasts, film screenings and other thought-provoking formats that allow us to explore our changing climate through the lenses of culture and heritage, the economy, and social equity.

Public Art: Site-specific art that changes the way we see and engage with our environment.
