Here you’ll find information on the Folk Fest as it progresses through the planning stages, as well as information on the festival’s history.
Folk Fest is a celebration of life that takes place the 2nd Weekend in July on the main street of Manistique, Michigan. Art and Craft Booths display their diverse wares on the second block continuing North on Cedar St while the aromas of Multicultural Food Booths tempt the participants down the street. A central stage provides ethnic music and entertainment with the Paul Bunyan Beer Garden close by. We have the Children’s Area with the Abra Cadabra Arcade Jumps which supplies the younger people with special fun. We also have a variety of Information Booths to investigate. Folk Fest is truly an event for everyone.
Consistently ranked as a favorite small town getaway by visitors, Manistique’s natural beauty provides the perfect setting for a day of antiquing and shopping. Specialty stores, charming restaurants, friendly residents, cozy taverns, gracious historic water tower and lighthouse, plus a full calendar of festivals, entertainment and special events combine to make Manistique irresistible! And it’s on the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan.
