Join us on the Island the second weekend in October every year for one of the largest Fall Fests in the EUP! Enjoy incredible food, sip a tasty craft beer, listen to a talented line-up of musicians, take in a show, shop our Artisan Fair, participate in the 5K/10K or tee off in the golf tournament. We have something for everyone - even a Saturday Night Pub Crawl!
This year's Fall Fest theme - "Pure U.P. - Island Style" - is going to be as fun as the food is delicious! Our "Taste of Drummond" will be showcasing the following vendors; C Cup Cakes, Esther’s Authentic Mexican Cuisine, Pins Bar & Grill, Sune's Grocery, TeePee and The Northwood Restaurant & Bar.
It’s not a party without beer so Lily’s Seafood & Micro Brewery from Royal Oak keeps the beer flowing with nine distinct micro brews named after Drummond Island destinations. A full bar is also available for purchase.
Listen to live music all day from Jedi Mind Trip! DJ Ron Fray - the Midnite Flyer will be playing in between sets to help keep the party flowing!
There will be 40 plus Artisan Vendors from across Michigan showcasing a variety of unique goods and delicious offerings including Bell's Bears carving demonstrations, Ogden Forge & Wood Shop, a 10K Run, 5K Walk/Run and 1 Mile Kid's Fun Run benefiting the Drummond Island Lions Club scholarship programs, strolling entertainment by Tommy Tropic, a fun-filled one-man-show with juggling, uni-cycling, magic and physical comedy. Joining Tommy this year will be Chet Mitchell - human statue, Oivio n' Toivo comedians, and Da U.P. Jugglers in their 2 man circus known as Da Flyin' Zambonis! We will also feature a giant bounce house and Cornhole Drop-in Tournaments.
The fun doesn’t end at 5 pm though because that is when the ever-popular Pub Crawl starts! The Pub Crawl will have two buses again this year! The continuous loop includes stops at Pins Bar & Grill of The Drummond Island Resort & Conference Center, Chuck’s Place, The Northwood and The Trailhead. The buses are FREE and you can get on and off as often as you like. Or, take your own vehicle—each bar has a different themed décor and their employees are dressed in wild costumes to match—it is an absolute must see!There is no fee for Pub Crawl participation.
Saturday's admission includes a collectible wooden token. Food and Drinks require Tasting/Drink Tickets in addition to the Entrance Fee(s). All tickets include a processing fee when purchased online.
