Michigan Festivals & Fairs ~ Summer Fun

Are you planning your summer activities? Are you thinking about staying

close to home?

There are hundreds of local festivals and events in Michigan beckoning

to you. Probably a few right in your own area. Michigan has over 19 million

 acres of land and 3288 miles of Great Lakes shoreline  - there is someplace

to have fun every weekend, even if you just take apicnic to the nearest lake

or park. Michigan has over 11,000 inland lakes to pick a picnic spot.

 Here are several places to check for summer fun in Michigan:

 

 Festivals.com - has listings for all over the country.

I searched for May in Michigan and these 4 came up for this weekend:

  • Hubbardston Memorial Day Festival - May 23-26 Hubbardston MI
  • Elk Rapids Arts & crafts Show - May 24 - Elk Rapids MI
  • Rochester Heritage Festival - May 25-25 - Rochester MI
  • Summer Seats & Beats - May 30 - Midland MI

Absolute Michigan - Fun things to do

Pure Michigan - Antiques & Flea Markets

Michigan Festivals & Events Association

Michigan Events - Calendar of arts & events in Michigan

Pure Michigan - One tank trips

County, Local, & State Fairs in Michigan

 

I think we will check out the one tank trips and see if we can find something

 fun to do this Memorial weekend.  Hope your weekend is fun & safe.

Terry, wow!  I'd never thought of Michigan as having so much water and access to beaches.  Sounds like lots of summer fun is coming up!

Pat: We are never more than a few minutes from a lake or river. Great Summer getaway come on over I'll buy the wine.

The one tank trip is a great promotion!  With the price of gas where it is right now, that is an important consideration for a lot of people.  We're finding that a lot of people are vacationing closer to home this year.

Lola: Gas sure is a consideration on the vacation plans we are lucky to be close to so many fun things to do.
