Lilac Festival on Mackinac Island

June 15-19 2018
Lilac Festival on Mackinac Island

June on Mackinac Island means one thing – the lilacs are in bloom.  Enjoy horse-drawn parades, concerts in the Park, a lilac walk & talk, dancing & tours as the fragrance of lilacs floats through the air.   Thousands of visitors head to the island to experience this celebration of the lilacs, equestrian culture, fine food & the arts that blend together to make Mackinac Island a one-of-a-kind destination.   The horse-drawn parade (one of few remaining in the Country) harkens to the early days of the Festival.  For a zany experience, take in the Epona & Barkus parade – complete with canines dressed to the hilt – leading up to the Mackinac Island Dog & Pony Show.
Mackinac Island has a microclimate that provides premium conditions to grow lilacs.  The purple beauties that call the island home, grow larger & live longer than lilacs in most gardens through the United States. 
Explore the island on bicycle, do a walking tour of local architectures, or tour the art exhibition. 
Mackinac Island  is an island suspended in a forgotten & more innocent time.  It is a place to relive the simple pleasures of life – from a leisurely carriage ride to a slow dance on the floors of the Grand Hotel, or go on an adventure & explore Arch Rock, Skull Cave & Sugar Loaf at Michigan’s first State Park. 
The Grand Hotel, America’s Summer Place since 1886, beckons you to a bygone era of old work hospitality & charm.  You will return to a time of horse drawn carriages, afternoon tea, croquet on an endless lawn & chamber music in the afternoon.  Elegant evenings begin with proper attire after 6:00pm.  Ballroom dancing throughout the evening,  following dinner.  Nothing intrudes on the serenity & natural beauty of Mackinac Island. 
Getting there is half the fun!  Leave motorized vehicles on the mainland & board the ferry for a 15 minute boat cruise to Mackinac Island.  Once you arrive on the Island, you will be greeted by the Dock Master & Grand Hotel Porters who will assist you.  Don’t worry about the luggage, we take care of that too!!!
