29 Aug HarborFest 2021 Plays Out the End of Summer: a Perfect Weekend of Fun [ Gallery ]
Marquette, MI – August 28, 2021 – This year’s HarborFest roared with excitement and delight as Marquette County celebrated. Music, food, and entertainment weren’t the only thing that made this weekend’s events a hit, but also the warm community who helped make this event exceptional.
The day kicked off with the Classic Car Show, showing off some beautiful cars near the park at Mattson Lower Harbor. Vehicles came in all shapes and sizes, with a colorful array of different makes and models to view.
A full line-up of bands performed for today’s event, starting with Beechgrove & Blacksmith, an eclectic band specializing in a beautiful, acoustic sound and hailing from the Marquette Area. The Daydreamers followed up for the late afternoon, covering hits from yesterday and today. The popular local variety rock band, Iron Daisy, took the stage at the start of the evening, hyping up the crowd with their fantastic set of songs. At last, the days’ events reached its pinnacle rock moment when Jovi took the stage, a Bon Jovi Cover band from the Detroit area, rocking the stage with some of Bon Jovi’s greatest hits and more.
Members of the community came from far and wide to support HarborFest and the Marquette West Rotary, as the audience danced to each new set. Live music wasn’t the only feature of the day’s events. Kids who attended the event in the late afternoon to evening got to party on the inflatables provided by Double Trouble Entertainment, along with kids’ activities nearby.
Local food vendors turned out to deliver the best in local cuisine and taste, including Rolling Smoke, Smelted Pizza, The Islands, and Dia De Los Tacos. The beer tent hosted Keweenaw Brewing Company and Oredock Brewing Company’s best brews. Over at the beer tent, local brews like Keweenaw Brewing Company and the Ore Docks Brewing Company dripped from the taps, along with Labatt. Seltzers came in cans from White Claws.
Marquette West Rotary would like to send its thank yous to its incredible sponsors, as well as everyone who attended HarborFest, each who made this the best comeback they could ask for!
