Keweenaw County-Wide Arts
Keweenaw Krayons, a non-profit art agency, offers annual arts programs in communities throughout Keweenaw County, the farthest northland in Michigan. Activities, which are open to residents (in all surrounding counties), tourists, and other visitors, have included art classes, garden projects and summer concerts and festivals.

One of the agency's ongoing events, The Thimbleberry Jam Fest, was born out of the Rural Arts & Culture Program, where concerts and festivals were offered throughout the Keweenaw. The Thimbleberry Jam Fest, held in the Allouez Township Park in Mohawk, now draws approximately 400-500 people to this small community. The number of food and art vendors increase yearly. Music is provided by local bands and musicians. Teens are involved in every aspect of the event.
