The White Pine Festival is an annual series of "world-class artistic and intellectual events set amid the natural beauty of Stillwater and Hudson, Wis," stated a press release regarding the event.

The third annual festival will take place June 17 to 21.

The White Pine Festival explores ideas from a range of artistic and intellectual perspectives, including music, literature, visual art, history, poetry, nature, science and philosophy.

Festival participants are encouraged to view art and the world in new ways and to approach the task with the vitality, humor and candor one finds in conversations among close friends.
