Grab the cooler and bust out the bathing suits – it’s summertime! Celebrate the beginning of vacation time at the Grosse Ile Island Fest at the Grosse Ile Municipal Airport, May 31-June 2, 2019.

The main daytime attractions include tons of awesome exhibitors with everything from handcrafted goods to clothes, garden art and more – plus there will be food and rides for all ages.

Kids and adults alike can have a blast together playing on the midway or watching the Saturday morning street parade.

A classic car show and traditional carnival rides and more also help you and yours kick off the start of the season – and the Saturday evening fireworks display definitely rings it in with a boom.

Find lots of fun live entertainment this year, too, like Wisteria, the DR5 and Mirror Image.
