Marina Park Indian River, MI

The Indian River Summerfest is a Pure North Family Celebration that takes place the third week of each July. With a Lobsterfest, Family Beach Bash, Entertainment Tent, Craft Show, Classic Car and Truck Show and more, there is something to entertain everyone in the family! 


The Main Stage and Tent are located in Marina Park near the confluence of the Little Sturgeon River and The Indian River which is part of the Inland Waterway. Marina park is accessible by auto from Club Road which is the first road West Burger king and Exit 310 on I75. Turn north on Club Road and the entrance to the park is at the 1st curve. This is also the overflow parking for the Municipal Boat Launch so there is plenty of room for your vehicle and trailers. Marina Park is easily accessible by foot from the main Street  (Old 27 or Straits Highway as it is called) and the Trail Head parking lot just south of the Chamber of Commerce.

Entry to the Entertainment Tent on Friday and Saturday is $5.00 per night.
