Located at the north end of a picturesque drive along M-37 through cherry orchards and vineyards, the 2021 Michigan Lighthouse Festival host, Mission Point Lighthouse stands as a classic piece of 150 year old Michigan history. While it no longer guides mariners through West Grand Traverse Bay as it did from September 10, 1870 until it was decommissioned in 1933, Mission Point Lighthouse now offers visitors a peek into what life was like around the turn of the century for lighthouse keepers and for others who lived and worked in the area at the time.
We're looking forward to hosting our annual Michigan Lighthouse Festival in 2021 but our usual festive activities may be adapted to protect our community's health! Additional plans and information are slated to be finalized in May. Follow us on Facebook and check www.MichiganLighthouseFestival.com for the most up-to-date plans!
Michigan Lighthouse Festival's mission is to advocate, honor, inspire, and promote all the lighthouses in the State of Michigan. Michigan has more lighthouses than any other state (129), and the Michigan Lighthouse Festival travels the great State of Michigan each year to celebrate and focus its beam on a new lighthouse!
Come join the GREAT ADVENTURE of the 5th Michigan Lighthouse Festival!
