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!!!
