90th Annual Fisherman’s Picnic in Grand Marais

Join us for one of our favorite festivals in the Coolest Small Town in America!

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!
