Big Ticket Festival 2017

The Big Ticket Festival is a 4 day family-friendly festival held in Gaylord, Michigan, that features performances from some of the top musicians on Christian Radio and speakers from all over the world. This year, Big Ticket Festival will be held Wednesday, June 21-Saturday, June 24 at the Otsego County Fairgrounds in Gaylord. Over 60 artists are scheduled to perform throughout the festival, including Skillet, Point of Grace, For King and Country, and many more.

Last year, BTF saw over 40,000 people over 4 days and was the 12th largest faith-based festival in the country. The Diocese of Gaylord is proud to once again be a sponsor of this event and to bring back GRAMMY® nominee and practicing Catholic Matt Maher on the Ebels Main Stage on Thursday night! In addition to being Thursday night's sponsor, we will be present throughout the entire festival at our Diocese of Gaylord ministry tent. Be sure to stop by and say hi - maybe you'll even see Bishop Raica!
