Miko Hughes from 'Pet Sematary'

In the 1989 film adaptation of Stephen King's Pet Sematary, Miko Hughes showed off his kill streak as zombie kid Gage Creed. The child actor went on to star in Kindergarten Cop, Apollo 13, Mercury Rising, and Wes Craven's New Nightmare before landing a recurring role on Full House as the adorable wisecracking Aaron. Miko will be at Windigo Fest all weekend....come on down and meet him!


Bill Gibson's Christine Movie Car is the most expansive, immersive Christine experience traveling today, now with fourteen years of thrilling fans under her wheels. Gibson took his passion for the 1983 Stephen King novel and film, and poured it into a loving restoration that stands as a detail-for-detail screen accurate representation of the titular homicidal vehicle, made of actual parts from cars featured in the John Carpenter directed horror classic.

The Glam Band

The Glam Band is made up of six guys with a love of 80's Hair Metal. The band plays only a handful of dates a year and puts on one hell of a show. Stop out and see us, but don't forget the Aqua Net!


Forged from the influences of two of history’s greatest bands, Beatallica are the world’s first live mash-up

or “bash-up” band.  Their wit, creativity, subversiveness, and flair are as sharp as the point they make.  Beatallica destroy the boundaries of creativity and reveal how original compositions of music can be crafted for those who identify with humor and biting commentary.  All the while, they show appreciation and reverence to The Beatles and Metallica, grandfathers of their respective genres.


Lockvibe is no stranger to the EDM music scene with being 20 years old and making music and playing music since the age of 14. With no certain style of sets you never know what to expect that’s what makes him so unique.

The next year, after playing a show with Dee Dee Ramone Curt from Def Wisconsin, they were offered a 7 inch record deal and played some amazing shows.When the record sold out and the band disbanded. Now, in 2019 Eric was in Japan, on tour with his other band Deathwish, and the singer of crooks shows up at a gig and they got to talking at the merch table when the guitar player just happens to write Eric let's do the crooks again! What are the odds?! So the Crooks are back to do a CD of all their material and play Windigo fest in October which will be the first time playing Manitowoc in 27 years!!!!!!!
