The Imlay City Downtown Development Authority would like to thank the Michigan Humanities Council for their generous support of the 2020 Summer Concert Series. A vibrant arts and cultural scene is important to strong communities and Michigan’s excellent quality-of-life, and ultimately, to Michigan’s economy.


The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs (MCACA) strengthens arts and culture in Michigan by increasing its visibility; supporting arts education; encouraging new, creative and innovative works of art; and broadening cultural understanding. A key conduit for arts and cultural information, MCACA is also a source of arts and culture grant funding.
