Bio: August 24, 1974: 1st Wheatland Music Festival was held as a benefit for the Mt. Pleasant Food Co-op Several hundred people attended this one day event which was held on The Rhode Family Farm, located four miles east of Remus on M-20. June Rhodes' utility room became festival headquarters, her backyard was the backstage area, and her sister-in-law's yard across the road was the parking lot. In 1975, elections were held and the Wheatland Board of Directors was established and the festival venue changed to the 160 acre farm of Mark and Gladys Wernette; the same farm where the Festival is still held today. Primitive camping is available with water on-site. Ice is available for purchase on site. A wide variety of local non-profit food vendors are on-site providing both vegetarian and traditional cuisine. The site includes a large main stage performance area, a tented stage area known as “2nd Stage” or “Centennial Stage”, a large dance pavilion with stage and a drumming tent. There are a wide variety of children's activities on Kids Hill which includes its own stage and a pleather of arts and crafts for all ages. Music workshops take place all weekend long in “Workshop Lane”; many of which are ran by the performers who grace one of our stages throughout the weekend.
