The 2011 Port Oneida Fair featured 6 historic sites in the Rural Historic District of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore about 4 miles north of Glen Arbor on M-22. The Fair is held on the second Friday and Saturday of August each year to highlight the rural culture and arts of the region.

Teams of workhorses and oxen were working in the fields while music was being played in the barn and kids were making ropes and eating popcorn. Over 100 demonstrators were practicing their crafts.

The Port Oneida Fair is sponsored by Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Friends of Sleeping Bear Dunes, and Preserve Historic Sleeping Bear. The planning committee is made up of numerous community groups that fund and support the fair with volunteers. This was the 10th anniversary of the Fair and was attended by over 3,500 visitors.
