Glacier Glide, held at Presque Isle Park in Marquette in Mid February, is an exhibit of adult and youth art. Youth art is displayed in the pavilion and adult work is displayed outdoors. Spectators hike, ski, or snowshoe to view the works, then return to the pavilion to cast their vote for their favorite adult and youth pieces. Ribbons and monetary prizes are awarded at the end of the show.


  • Artwork must be made by the exhibitor, with no entries being made from kits or commercial reproduction, and not shown at previous Glacier Glide shows.
  • All work in the adult (outdoor) division must be made to hold up to winter conditions.
  • Installation may not cause damage to trees or other natural habitat.
