Spend a weekend celebrating the inviting blue waters of Lake Michigan and the Black River at the South Haven Harborfest.

Each night festival goers are treated to live music from a variety of bands – local, nationally known, country, pop and oldies – with a beer garden on hand for beverages and food vendors serving up tasty eats.

From Friday on, enjoy a stroll along the picturesque Black River waterfront leading out to the lighthouse while browsing amongst the creative offerings at the Craft Fair. Everything from hats to jewelry to summer sausage is available for purchase.

Little ones can enjoy face painting, and the festival’s carnival rides are bound to be a hit with the kids.
