The outdoor festival brings together artists, local eats, face painting and live music.

“The BBSC is excited to celebrate fall with residents of Big Bay and visitors alike! Great things can happen when we work together as a community and collaborate with others such as Marquette County Perkins Park. Our event will be a wonderful town fair in Big Bay and we are looking forward to welcoming you,” said Sven Gonstead, Chairman of the Big Bay Stewardship Council.

The day will kick off at 11:00 a.m. with Cars & Coffee who will be driving their specialty cars through Big Bay to Draver Park. All those wishing to squeeze in that last drive before putting their wheels away for the winter are welcome to join them.

There will also be t-shirts, fall décor and other merchandise for sale to raise funds for the BBSC.
