Festival of the Angry Bear



Spring Street’s Springtime Street Fest returns and THE BEAR IS BACK!

After an unimaginable two year hibernation, the Angry Bear is ready to rise from sleepy dreams with the biggest roar yet. Prepare for a celebration unlike any other, as party animals from all over the Great Lakes emerge from their winter caves and converge on downtown Marquette to thaw their paws and raise a pint.

The Barrel-Aged Spring Awakening features 3 stages of live music and performances, a feast of food trucks, 4 bars with over 30 taps of Superior Sourced suds, and an arsenal of barrel-aged beer, limited releases and ceremonial tappings.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a cover charge?: Hell no! The bear may wake angry, but we want as many of you to enjoy the festival as we can fit. To make sure everyone can enter the den, we do not sell tickets to the festival or charge a cover – it’s FREE. That said, if you want to imbibe those puckering brews, you’ll need to purchase the official Angry Bear festival goblet or upgrade to the Limited Edition Angry Bear Stein.

Reusing Festival Cups: Offficial Festival Goblets will be available at every bar in addition to the Limited Edition 2022 AB Stein. Have an official festival cup or stein from a previous Angry Bear?! BRING IT!

Age Restrictions: Due to growing festival attendance and corresponding capacity limitations, the festival will be 21+. This is the first year where we’ve had to ask that you leave the cubs at home, but stay tuned for details for the family friendly “Baby Bear” taking place Thursday, April 7.

Weather: Spring may be here according to the calendar, but we know April can still get a little frosty, and honestly, we don’t care. This party rages rain, snow or shine. While we hope for a sun, we’re not in charge. When you’re crazy enough to throw a Street fest in the U.P. Spring, you pull out all of the stops to make sure mother nature in taken into account. The tents will be heated with the biggest baddest furnaces we could find but we encourage you to consult with Karl Bohnak or your trusted weather forecast and dress accordingly so you can have the time of your life. Bring out the fur!

Pet Policy: Though we would love to host our four-legged friends, no pets will be permitted into the festival area. Service animals will be permitted with proper credentials.

COVID Considerations:  We are doing everything possible to provide the safest environment possible for attendees. We have increased our outdoor space, implemented over-the-top cleaning procedures, and will have masks and sanitation stations available throughout the festival. We ask that if you are feeling ill, please be responsible and stay home.
