The air is cooling, the apples are ripening and the green leaves are turning to crimson and gold.Celebrate fall’s arrival along the shores of Lake Michigan with two days of events at St. Joseph’s Fall Festival.
The festivities kick off Friday afternoon with The Great Bed Race, in which teams of up to four pushers and one rider race a bed through a course, striving to achieve a faster time than the rest of the competitors. Racing beds can be designed by the team or rented from the race sponsors.
Saturday morning the focus switches to the Farmer’s Market located downtown, where visitors will find a petting zoo and face painting as well as the usual offerings of farm fresh fruit and vegetables, jam, baked goods, fresh bread and more.
Saturday evening from 4-9 the Wine Festival and Public Art Auction takes place, featuring beverages from Michigan wineries, tasty eats from local restaurants and the opportunity to bid on works of art, all while enjoying live music.
The St. Joseph Fall Festival – what a fun & tasty way to welcome autumn to Michigan!
