March, 16th, 2020: Due to federal recommendations to not hold any events with more than 10 people, the Spring Beak Escape – National Park Movie Festival will be postponed until further notice. 

In a continuation of the Sleeping Bear 50th Anniversary activities, the Park will be hosting a “Spring Break Escape ~ National Parks Film Festival” at the Park Visitor Center during March. These films will highlight other National Parks, come for the entire time or pop in when you can. Seating is limited to 100 people at a time due to the size of the theater in the Visitor Center.

Come enjoy some movies highlighting other great Nations Parks across the U.S., including well-known Grand Canyon, scorching Death Valley, sunny Gulf Island, remote Glacier Bay, and Sleeping Bear Dunes’ newest BFF, Apostle Islands National Lakeshore, who is also celebrating their 50th anniversary this year. The National Lakeshore has 14 fascinating park films to share and is planning at least one special event each month in 2020.
Some healthy snacks will be provided and Friends Volunteers will be on-site to answer questions about some of our programs. 

Time: 12:30 to 3:30
Location: the Phillip A. Heart Visitors Center, Empire MI
Dates:  Will update upon further notification.
