The Petoskey area hosts a variety of events, including our favorite special events list to the left that we look forward to every year!
Harbor Springs offers their Harbor Springs Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm at 157 State St. in Downtown Harbor Springs. The market has about a dozen vendors who offer everything from eggs to greens, meats to pastas and more.
Hop on board a Harbor Springs new Carriage Ride every weekend. Each Friday and Sunday, residents and visitors can take tour Harbor Springs by horse and carriage with this new, free of charge service. The idea for the free carriage rides came from BreknRidge Farms owner Karin Offield and is supported by downtown businesses. The carriage loads every 30 minutes near the Pier, New York, and Bar Harbor and also makes stops near Island Bean Coffee Company, Wooly Bugger, American Spoon Foods and Spice Harbor. Three tours are available: historical, waterfront, and downtown.
The Camp Daggett Adventure Center will present a workshop for individuals interested in learning about adventure education and the utilization of a challenge ropes course. Educators, youth group leaders, scout troop leaders or anyone working with young people will be given ideas and activities that can be taken back to the workplace and used with minimal props and expense. Additional areas covered include the philosophy of an adventure program, building trust, presenting and processing group initiatives, safety standards, developing a “critical eye” toward safety, proper care and use of technical equipment, belay technique on the high course and implementing adventure activities into curriculum or existing programs. Upon completion of this workshop, participants will have a basic knowledge of and experience with a challenge ropes course program. Please note that this does not include certification or blanket approval to operate a ropes course program. Cost is $175 and includes lunch, instruction, safety/instructor manual and use of equipment. A $50 deposit is required to reserve a spot. The workshop is limited to 15 participants (age 21 and older.)
