Festivals & Events

One of the best things about visiting a new area is their festivals and events. You get to know the friendly, welcoming locals who greet you with a warm smile and gentle handshake.

Well, the Michigan Thumb Area has no shortage of festivals and events. We’ve got everything from Bay Port’s Fish Sandwich Festival to Cheeseburger in Caseville. Plus, let’s not forget about our homegrown festivals – Bean, Sugar, Potato, Pumpkin, Tomato and more. And we have plenty of seasonal/holiday-themed events as well. Click here to view our Thumb Area calendar of events to see what’s happening while you’re in town.

The Thumb Area Tourism Council is supported through a membership program. Our members are listed based on category level and in alphabetical order, followed by non-members. Only the business name and location will show for non-members.
