Top 5 Summer Events in Marquette

Top 5 Summer Events in Marquette

Visiting Marquette this summer? Here is a list of our favorite festivals to check out while you're here!

#5: Harborfest

Harborfest was started in 2016 by Marquette West Rotary. The proceeds go to various non-profit organizations, which is awesome! The event is free and features music, food, craft beer, and family activities. Plus, there is a car and motorcycle show! In 2019 it will be held August 23-24.

#4: Art on the Rocks

Art on the Rocks is celebrating its 61st annual juried fine arts show. They're featuring over 140 artists in 2019! Exhibits include pottery, ceramics, glass, painting, photography, mixed media, jewelry, and more. We often get asked if we participate, and we don't, but we're just a short walk from the festival. This year, it will be held July 27-28.

#2: Forestville Festival

Forestville Festival is a music and beer festival in the woods. All of the proceeds go to the Noquemanon Trail Network for upkeep costs. This year, the festival will take place on July 12-13, and will feature local bands and breweries. There is camping on site as well.

#1: Blueberry Fest

Blueberry Fest might be Marquette's most famous summer festival and for good reason! It's held downtown and features sidewalk sales, food vendors, artists, and activities for kids and families. Most restaurants offer blueberry themed menu specials, and you've got to stop by the Vierling for a Blueberry Wheat Beer with frozen berries tossed in. This year, the festival will be held on July 26.
