2016 Blue Water Sturgeon Festival – Port Huron, MI @ Great Lakes Maritime Center
Jun 3 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Did you know? The lake sturgeon is often called a “living fossil”. It’s part of a family of fish that has existed unchanged for more than 135 million years.

The Sturgeon Festival is a family-friendly event, sponsored by Friends of the St. Clair River, centered on providing close encounters with the “Giants of the Great Lakes”. Browse a dozen indoor & outdoor displays with hands-on activities, drop-in a workshop, touch a live sturgeon and other native fish, or take a ride on the exclusive Huron Lady Sturgeon Cruise.

Sturgeon are a fascinating species of fish to see up close. The average sturgeon can weigh up to 150 pounds, grow over 7 feet, and live over 100 years.  The St. Clair River ecosystem supports the largest remaining population of free-ranging threatened lake sturgeon. Over 10,000 lake sturgeon call underneath the Blue Water Bridges home which makes it possible to see these majestic fish if given the opportunity.

Run With the Sturgeon 5k Race and 1k Fun Run

Run With the Sturgeon is a 5k race and 1k fun run along the beautiful Blue Water River Walk on the shores of the St. Clair River. Meet the mascot, Seymour Sturgeon, who will be cheering you on! Stick around after the race for the award ceremony and to see a threatened Lake Sturgeon from Lake Huron up close and personal. Race proceeds benefit Friends of the St. Clair River Sturgeon For Tomorrow and Starting Line Youth Running Fund. The race will take place rain or shine! All 5k participants receive a t-shirt. All 1k participants receive a medal.
