Join us for one of our favorite festivals in the Coolest Small Town in America!
This coming weekend is the 90th Annual Fisherman’s Picnic in Grand Marais. The four-day festival begins Thursday, Aug. 1 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 4. A favorite of locals and tourists, this event is located in Grand Marais‘s Downtown Harbor Park and sponsored by the Grand Marais Lions Club.
This year, the Fisherman’s Picnic festival line up includes crazy days sales, a large craft show, daily contests and prizes, specials and events at local stores, live music in Harbor Park, food trucks, Bingo, blacksmithing demonstrations, cross-cut saw competitions, kids activities, rock skipping contests, a Fisherman’s Picnic 5 mile trail run or 5K walk on Saturday morning, a street dance and fireworks on Saturday night, a fish toss contest (you have to see it to believe it!), and a parade on Sunday afternoon.
The Fisherman’s Picnic truly is fun for the whole family and one that many of our Bluefin Bay Family of Resorts guests look forward to all year. The Lions Club hosts a BIG raffle, including a grand prize of $10,000! In addition, the club will be serving up their infamous Fish burgers. You have to try one!
Head to the Bluefin Grille on Thursday, December 28th for the Voyageur Brewing Company Tap Takeover! They’ll be pouring their flagship offerings plus 3 seasonal brews from 5-9pm. Voyageur Brewing Company is based in beautiful Grand Marais where they create adventurous craft beers and have become a favorite place for the community and tourists to gather over a pint or two near the shores of Lake Superior.
Voyageur Brewing distributes their flagship offerings in bottles and kegs year-round and here’s what will be on offer during the tap takeover: Trailbreaker Belgian Wit, Boundary Waters Brunette, Palisade Porter, and Devil’s Kettle IPA. They will also have three seasonal brews: The Sled Hound Session IPA, Red Sash Irish Ale, and the Bearpaw Dunkelweizen. The beers range from having fruit notes to those having hints of coffee and chocolate. Beer fans with a palate for hops will enjoy either the session IPA or the flagship IPA.
A representative from Voyageur Brewing Company will be able to answer questions about Voyageur Brewing Company and their beer. They’ll even have some swag to give away!
The Bluefin Grille will also have a bar food feature starting at 5 pm served buffet style for $12 per person all you can eat.
