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 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!

I enjoy being a Chamber Ambassador because it allows me to meet new and interesting people in a business environment. As a young professional, it is very important to me to have the opportunity to expand my professional circle.
