Nestled at the base of Mt. Ashwabay Ski Hill, 3 miles south of Bayfield, Wisconsin, Big Top overlooks Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore. Our summer schedule includes performances by renowned national, regional and touring musicians and runs from mid June to early September. On balmy summer nights the tent sidewalls can be lifted and people may sit outside and even up on the hillside. The sound is superb and on clear nights you can see the Milky Way and sometimes even the Northern Lights!
The shuttles operate for most shows from June 13 thru Sept. 12. Shuttle for Big TAP on Sept. 13 leaves Ashland at noon
and Bayfield at 12:30. The shuttle is not available for matinees. Call for more information 715-373-5552.
