Michigan Mosaic Music Festival
The Michigan Mosaic Music Festival is a public celebration of diversity and unity on Labor Day weekend (Saturday, August 31 – Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013) in Michigan’s capital city (Adado Riverfront Park, Lansing). Activities include live bands, multicultural performances, ethnic cuisine, beverage tent, and activities for children.
Named for the ancient art form of small multi-colored stones carefully placed to form a larger mural pattern, Michigan Mosaic Music Festival (Mosaic) bridges diverse communities in an outdoor celebration of labor and the diverse people who have built this city. The event is staged over Labor Day weekend in cooperation with Michigan Institute for Contemporary Art, the labor community, and the City of Lansing.

Saturday 12-5 pm, Mosaic will feature a “moonwalk” for kids.
On Sunday, the Capital City Dragon Boat Race (across the river) will feature a MSU-staffed kite-making activity and playland. Then, kids will come over to the Mosaic side of the park to fly their new kites.
Turnaround Lounge & Food Vendors
Mosaic features the Turnaround Lounge (beverage tent). This is a prime location to enjoy music and cultural performances. The Turnaround Lounge is also the only festival vendor licensed to sell alcohol. Because of this, all entrants must show ID proving they are at least 21 years of age. Admission to the Turnaround Lounge is $5/day.
A variety of ethnic food vendors are also available in our vendor area – taste the diversity of Lansing.
Concurrent with the Michigan Mosaic Music Festival, the Capital City Dragon Boat Race will be taking place on the Grand River Sunday. Our festival site on the west bank of the river is a great place to watch the traditional “Awakening the Dragons” ceremony at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, and observe the races which begin at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday. So come out to watch the fun!Read More
