BAH Bite Size Biz Business Awards Festival of Trees

This is the signature festival for the Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce.  Hosted every year over the 4th of July/Independence Day Holiday, the Manistee National Forest Festival is a Manistee County tradition stretching back nearly 80 years.  

Drawing thousands of tourists to the area along with many residents returning with ties to the community, this festival embodies the idea of "Community" that so many love about this area.  Each year, the Forest Festival highlights events such as the Manistee World of Arts & Crafts, Independence Day Parade, Fireworks over Lake Michigan, Festival Marketplace, carnival and much more!
