74th Annual Lilac Festival

June 

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.

This year's theme is Legends and Lore of Mackinac Island!
