A multitude of cultural and recreational attractions are found within Dowagiac and its neighboring Sister Lakes to quench the thirst of the fine arts enthusiast, the naturalist who enjoys meandering fields of wildflowers, or the family in search of summertime excitement.

Along the brick sidewalks you'll find live theatre, museums,  and art classes and galleries, festivals for every season, instrumental and vocal concerts, plus weekend entertainment that will sweep you onto the dance floor.

Music in the Park

In the tradition of the musical fare presented in Dowagiac during the late 1800s by the Round Oak Band, friends and family gather downtown on Thursday evenings for the Dowagiac Summer Concert Series. 


Dowagiac's central business district is the home of Beckwith Theatre Company.  Evening and matinee performances are held within an historic 1925 Neo-Gothic building.
