Fun All Summer Long in the Village at Bay Harbor

It’s a summer full of fun in the Village at Bay Harbor! Music on Main is making its debut as a weekly event; it takes place every Thursday from 6 pm – 8 pm and features local Musicians.

Don’t miss the 16th annual Bay Harbor Lake Marina In-Water Boat Show, taking place Father’s Day weekend, June 15-17. It’s our biggest show ever! Come kick off boating season by viewing the different types of boats from pleasure to yachts, as well as diverse land displays. A week after the In-Water Boat Show is the annual Bay Harbor Foundation Vintage Car & Boat Festival on June 23. Featuring a parade of vintage cars, beautiful wooden boats and performance by the Petoskey Steel Drum Band, it is a tradition that you won’t want to miss.

On July 3, Independence Day celebrations start with a waterfront performance by the Petoskey Steel Drum Band, which is followed by an unparalleled display of fireworks over Bay Harbor Lake. On the 4th of July, enjoy the Patriotic Parade on Main Street, which will feature GEM cars, vintage vehicles, bikes, characters, and so much more.

The 19th annual Bay Harbor Arts Festival is happening July 27-28 on the Village waterfront lawns. The Festival will feature both a juried fine arts section, and a non-juried green market for artisan items such as fine soaps, craft items, and many unique treasures.

August 18, in accordance with Petoskey’s Festival on the Bay, we will be holding the second annual Festival on the Bay Beach Volleyball Tournament on Sunset Beach.

On August 30, the Bay Harbor Foundation will host a new event. The Guinness World Record Community Dinner on Main Street will be an attempt to create a Guinness World record for the longest five-course farm-to-table community dinner. The candlelight meal will span our beautiful Main Street. And to wrap up the summer, come and visit us on Labor Day weekend for sidewalk sales.

We hope to see you in the Village this summer! Find out more about these and other exciting events at or on Facebook @bayharbormi
