Annual lighthouse festival to celebrate Northern Michigan landmark

Loading ....

TRAVERSE CITY, MICH. — The annual Great Lakes Lighthouse Festival will have an extra reason to celebrate this year, as it coincides with a big anniversary for an iconic Northern Michigan light.

The 2020 festival will not only commemorate the rich history of this region’s lighthouses, but also mark the 150th anniversary of Mission Point Lighthouse, located at the tip of Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City.

This year’s festival will be held August 7 and 8.

The schedule includes both free and priced events, including a ticketed kick-off program, with a dinner, cash bar, and entertainment.

There will also be a free “Lighthouse MarketPlace” featuring authors, artists, photographers, and crafters, and the lighthouse will be open for self-guided tours. Festival details and ticket information can be found online here.

Mission Point Lighthouse began operating in September 1870 and was decommissioned in 1933. The lighthouse is now largely run by volunteers, and is home to a museum and gift shop, as well as a historic log cabin and miles of trails in the surrounding Lighthouse Park. The lighthouse is open May through October, and on weekends in November.
