Great fun among Ludington State Park’s summer musical series, lineup

LUDINGTON – Friends of Ludington State Park has announced that the 2021 music and adventure summer programs are back after a year off due to the pandemic.

This year’s lineup includes many returning artists and a few new ones.

This year, musicians Chloe Kimes, Lee Murdock, Awesome Distraction and more at the Ludington State Park Amphitheater.

Two popular wildlife programs are planned: Holland’s Outdoor Live Birds of Prey Discovery Center and Nature Discovery’s Michigan Reptiles and Amphibians, based in Williamston.

In order to provide plenty of space, several shows will be held at the Lake Michigan Beach House where participants can spread out on the beach. Others will continue in the very popular wooded amphitheater south of the Sable River footbridge.

The series is composed by park performer Alan Wernette. The presentations are designed to entertain campers, residents and visitors to the area.

Concerts and 7 p.m. programs are free, although donations are accepted to help defray the cost of the FLSP sponsored series. Donations can also be made online at Additionally, this year a donor provided funding through a community foundation for the Mason County Wish List to help defray costs.
