Comedy Fest To Return To Traverse City

Aug. 27, 2019

Michael Moore and officials from the Traverse City Film Festival (TCFF) confirmed that the Traverse City Winter Comedy Arts Festival, which ran until 2015, will return this winter. 

Specific dates and details have yet to be finalized, but officials did confirm to The Ticker that the fest will be held on a Thursday-Sunday in late February or early March. It will again be focused on live comedy and family and kids events at various local venues, including the State Theater.

Meg Weichman of the TCFF says the revitalized Winter Comedy Arts Festival will bring "top tier talent to town, with some unique events that will celebrate a much needed comedy respite when winter is at its bleakest." The outdoor portion of the event, which included closing Front Street downtown for various events, will not be a part of the new iteration.
