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

BMJ mixed metal pendants are my faves, but this one may be the new #1 in my collection. Sunflowers give off such a happy, cheerful vibe that I decided this was the piece that I wanted to wear to help me get through my first chemotherapy session. And you know what? It totally worked. My day sucked a little less wearing this little piece of sunshine. Thanks for sharing your creativity with us - I'll be your biggest fan for life!
I love how Beth's double-banded rings can make a bold statement but still feel light and fit so well. They're my go-to rings.
These are the best for polishing my jewelry
I recently purchased the hummingbird pendant and earrings. I absolutely love them and have gotten so many compliments. Very high quality.
Perfect birthday gift for my daughter-in-law :)
I love this pendant. My husband purchased it for my 50th birthday. We are Minnesotans and we love the UP. The fact that this stone is from the UP makes it very special. And I love that the pendant is reversable!
I love my new earrings, they are such a beautiful shape and color. They are a perfect addition to my Beth Milder collection of jewelry
I am so happy to have ordered this unique piece! as someone with metal allergies it is hard to find silver jewelry that doesn't cause me to break out and I have never had a problem through Beth Millner! Supporting a small local business is an added bonus!
Fifty years ago in September, I began my first semester at
Michigan Technological University.
Superior, its forests, rivers, and rock completely captured my mind and heart.
I return each year with my partner to continue to explore the beautiful, the wild, and epic of this place.
As a remembrance of all that it has meant, and continues to mean to me, I purchased your beautifully crafted “Two Hearted River” pendant.
Thank you to all of the artisans who contributed to this stunning piece.
