Festivals

Spring’s dramatic display of flowers certainly calls for celebration, and in Traverse City we’ve always observed the onset of the spring bloom with appropriate festivities. There are several festivals that promote blossom season as a time to enjoy spring’s distinctive culinary treasures – tender asparagus shoots at the Empire Asparagus Festival and the delectable morel mushrooms gathered in our forests at the Mesick Mushroom Festival. Spring is also time to celebrate Michigan’s most unique fossil at the Antrim County Petoskey Stone Festival.
