Transportion and Directions to Interlochen Center for the Arts 

The Performing and Visual Arts fair will take place in the new Dennison Center for Recreation. This is a new location on campus from previous years.

Please enter through main gate. All visitors will check-in at the Welcome Center. Let the attendant know you are here for the College Fair located in the Dennison Center. Proceed thru and turn to the right. The center encourages you to park in Lots A, B, or C.

Car rental is recommended. Cherry Capital Airport (TVC) near Traverse City is the closest airport to Interlochen, which is about 15 miles northeast.

Directions from Traverse City:
Follow M-37 S / US-31 S / Division Street south of town. At the intersection with Beitner Road, turn right/west to stay on US-31 S. Take US-31 S nine miles west to the light in Interlochen (at Ric's Food Center and Wendy's). Turn left on to M-137 S. Drive 1.7 miles. The main entrance will be on your right, across from the Interlochen State Park.

Directions from Grand Rapids and southwestern parts of Michigan:
Take US 131 north to just south of Cadillac (see the rest of the directions below)

Directions from Lansing and central Michigan:
Take US 27 north, and then bear right on M-115. (See the rest of the directions below)

Directions from Flint and southeastern parts of Michigan:
Take Interstate 75 north to US 10 west to M-115. Near Cadillac, go north on M-115 to the Manistee River, approximately one-half mile past the village of Mesick, Michigan. Cross the Manistee River Bridge and proceed one-quarter mile to County Road 9 -- it's the first road past the bridge and is marked with a small green "N 9 RD" street sign on a pole. You'll pass a green "Interlochen" sign on the right shoulder about 50 yards before the intersection.

Turn right onto County Road 9, go up the hill, and proceed 7.4 miles to the stop sign which will be at County Line Road -- it's marked by a small green "W County Line" street sign, and you'll see a green "Interlochen" sign on the right side of the road just before the intersection. Turn left onto County Line Road and proceed exactly 1 mile to the first intersection, marked with a green "Karlin Road" street sign (Karlin Road is Grand Traverse County 137, which becomes Michigan 137 near Interlochen). Look for a green "Interlochen" sign on the right just before Karlin Road. Turn right onto Karlin Road and proceed 9.7 miles to the Interlochen Center for the Arts. The campus entrance is on the left, just past the Interlochen State Park.

If you get lost along the way, call the Interlochen switchboard (open 24 hours) for help at 231/276-7200.
