Brief Description

Our goal is to create a sustainable signature event that drives overnight stays in the
fall and pays tribute to our moniker as the ‘Art Coast of Michigan’. In an effort to
extend the summer season once the fall chill sets in, we seek to invest in placemaking
installations to anchor a fall Harvest festival that emphasize the beauty of our natural
areas, authenticate our deep-seated history with the arts, and utilize the bountiful
agricultural & culinary resources unique to our area. Through this signature annual
event, we strive to enhance the quality of life of our community while encouraging
tourism in a season poised for economic growth.
