Spend an afternoon enjoying food & beverage sampling, live music from Hoff Stevens and the Blue Canvas Orchestra, hammerschlagen, and amazing views of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands.

Launched in 2012 by long-time Big Top Board Member and Vice-President, Bayfield & Cornucopia business leader, and beloved friend Kevin Hunt, Big Tap ChautauquaFest is back at the tent for the first time since 2019. Come enjoy live music from Hoff Stevens and the BCO lead by Molly Otis & Ed Willett for a fittingly raucous mix of pop, bluegrass and rock tunes perfect for drinking, socializing and dancing. Local restaurants present samples of their signature dishes, the Ashwabay Grille puts on the bratwursts and the kraut, while local and regional breweries, wineries, and distilleries offer a variety of their best taps and spirits. Funds raised support Big Top and Mt. Ashwabay operations.
