74th Annual Lilac Festival
June 3rd -12th, 2022
Celebrating Mackinac’s lilac collection began in 1949. The idea was to bring people to the Island to enjoy a great horse-drawn parade amidst the lovely lilacs that fragrance the Island in June. What began as a one-day event called the Mackinac Island Lilac Day has blossomed into a ten-day festival.
Lilac Festival Grand Parade
Considered a Local Legacy Event by the United States Library of Congress, this festival finale has marching bands, horse-drawn floats, the Lilac Queen and Court, clowns, various groups and other parade participants to help wrap up the end of our fabulous festival week!
