The members of the Marquette West Rotary Club invite locals and visitors alike to join them for this year’s HarborFest to be held at Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Marquette August 22-24, 2019.
HarborFest has been sponsored for almost 40 years by the Marquette West Rotary Club. What started out as a festival dedicated to seafood has morphed into a fun-filled festival celebrating the end of summer on the shores of Lake Superior. Great music, food, beverages and family friendly activities fill Friday and Saturday in the park. Admission is free, and kids’ activities, food and beverages are all exchanged for shiny silver tokens.
The event begins on Thursday evening with Luau on the Lake. This adult event includes fabulous food, beer and wine. Tickets are $75 per person.
