The site includes RV hookups to horse arenas and a view that overlooks East Bay, making staying over night a breeze. “We’re really excited to welcome Lyle to our corner of the world and we’re especially excited to be hosting him at Flintfields, a horse show facility that attracts top level riders, including Olympic Silver and Gold medalists, and is a newly emerging festival site, only 11 miles from downtown Traverse City. This site currently hosts the annual world-renowned Horse Shows By the Bay Equestrian Festival. As well, Tent Venue offers a one-of-a-kind production for Lyle’s concert.
