Tulip Time Festival
May 7 – May 14 all-day

April-showers1Join us for this year’s Tulip Time Festival, May 7-14, 2016!

 

Of course the number one attraction is the tulip itself — and there are literally millions to see, in our city parks, Downtown planters, Tulip Lanes, Windmill Island Gardens, Nelis’ Dutch Village, and Veldheer’s Tulip Farm. See this page for tulip locations.

Tulip Time has been named the “Best Small Town Festival” by Readers Digest, and just this year, received USA Today’s 2016 Best Flower Festival!. The festival celebrates Holland’s Dutch heritage with 8 days of events and special attractions. If you love a parade, Tulip Time has three – the Volksparade, Kinderparade, and Muziekparade. The Dutch Marktplaats serves up plenty of Dutch food, merchandise, and demonstrations, while the festive Kinderplaats provides kids with a park-full of activities. Throughout town, you’ll have many chances to experience traditional Klompen (wooden shoe) dancing, as well as the Art & Craft Fair, Quilt Show, carnival rides, concerts, theatrical shows, fireworks, trolley tours, and so much more!

National Morel Mushroom Festival
May 17 @ 5:00 pm – May 21 @ 5:00 pm

National Morel Mushroom Festival

Each May, Boyne City, Michigan fills with hundreds of mushroom lovers from around the country who come seeking that elusive delicacy-the marvelous morel. Found in nearby woods and clearings, morels are favored by those who know their ‘shrooms. Boyne City has hosted the National Morel Mushroom Festival for 55 years.

For a few short days, everything is all about mushrooms. Restaurants prepare exotic, morel-laden entrees, local songsters sing of the morel (click on the player to the left to listen), secret hunting places (maybe) and recipes (definitely) are shared, and everybody goes on one of the mushroom hunts. A good year can yield hundreds of the mouth-watering treats. But even when a dry spell or late spring makes morels scarce, morels can be tasted at several tasting events and the festival is always fun for everyone. 

National Morel Mushroom Festival

Michigan’s mighty morel summons fans nationwide to Boyne City:

From Michigan Blue magazine: “After winter’s thaw, Boyne City starts the high season early with an annual event that finds thousands of tourists, hundreds of foragers and countless edible mushrooms popping up all over the area. The occasion is the National Morel Mushroom Festival held in May to celebrate the famed hometown specialty. And the chance to get in on the first taste of spring draws a mass of hopeful fans into town looking to unearth some precious bounty.”


 

Events Include:

  • Open mic competition
  • Schmidt Amusements Carnival
  • Craft Beer Block Party
  • Craft Show
  • M.O.R.E.L. Show
  • Morel seminar

East Lansing Art Festival @ Downtown, East Lansing, Michigan
May 19 @ 7:00 pm – May 21 @ 5:00 pm
East Lansing Art Festival @ Downtown, East Lansing, Michigan

The mission of the ELAF is to enhance the sense of community and appreciation of art, culture and creativity in East Lansing and the greater Lansing region. The East Lansing Art Festival debuted in 1964 as Greenwich Village Days, a sidewalk art sale designed as a project for a student advertising club at Michigan State University. Later, the ELAF was presented as an event to spark interest in downtown East Lansing as a premier place to shop. In the 54 years since its inception, the Festival has morphed into a major community undertaking that presents hundreds of artists and craftspeople, attracts tens of thousands of visitors, and requires year-round efforts from hundreds of volunteers.
