The show that started it all! Created in 1985 by Warren Nelson and Betty Ferris, “Riding The Wind” was the first show performed on the Big Top Stage and 36 years later it remains a season highlight

Ride the winds of time as you experience "illuminated musical history" of Bayfield and the Island Environs, with secrets of Red Cliff and Old LaPointe. Original music, evocative story-telling, and spectacular visuals lead you through a journey with lighthouse keepers, the Ojibwe, dreamers and schemers, voyageurs, fishermen, and more. Warren Nelson's original songs from this show have become classics. Come see it with friends for the first time or as so many have done, see and hear it again and again and again. Riding the Wind never loses its magic.

Featuring: Ed Willett, Warren Nelson, Severin Behnen, Phil Anich, Jack Gunderson, Tom Mitchell, Danielle Diamond, Mary Lou Williams, Randy Sabien, Otis McLennon, Betty Ferris, and Gerry DePerry
