What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Halloween Festivities, Big Band Dinner & Dance

Petoskey Area Visitors Bureau

There are no tricks in the Petoskey area when Halloween rolls around, only treats. For the adults, there’s a Haunted Halloween Progressive Dinner this Friday, featuring appetizers, dinner, dessert, and some great stories in downtown Petoskey. The younger generation will enjoy the trick-or-treating and costume parade in downtown Petoskey on Saturday, October 28th. On Halloween, bring the kids to the Village at Bay Harbor for Trunk-Or-Treat from 4pm to 5pm. Enjoy all the tricked-out trunks and stay for dinner in this waterfront village near Petoskey.

Black Star Farms

Fall is a beautiful time to explore northern Michigan wineries. This fall, experience Black Star Farms in Suttons Bay in a whole new way! After you take in all of the fall colors, go on a 45-minute guided tour through the breathtaking property, including the exclusive inn, centennial barn, and wine cave, while learning the history of this iconic 160-acre estate and its wine. The tour concludes with a premium tasting & souvenir glass, featuring award-winning wine, cider, and spirits.

Portage Point Inn & Marina

Swing your way into Fall with the upcoming Big Band Dinner and Dance at Portage Point Inn & Marina in Onekama. Join the fun on Saturday, November 4th, with a dinner dance featuring the 16-piece band “General Assembly” in Portage Point’s historic, lakeside banquet room. Cut a rug on the spacious hardwood dance floor, or just kick back and enjoy the sweet sounds of the big band. Tickets are available just for the dinner and dance, or you can upgrade to an overnight package for a true getaway.
