What is HarborFest?

HarborFest is one of the best free 2 day music festivals in the UP, but it’s so much more. It includes a beer and wine tent specializing in craft beers. It has food tents, Kids inflatable activities, a classic car & motorcycle show, antique canoes to view, a luge demonstration track to try, tours of a 200 foot Coast Guard vessel and the culmination of a fishing tournament with live dock side catch and release. It’s a family oriented event with a party atmosphere at night.


Music performances at HarborFest are a combination of local bands and major acts out of Chicago. The music has variety including Country, Folk, Blues but with a heavy emphasize on Rock. Each night ends with a headliner band. This year we are featuring:

Who does HarborFest help?

HarborFest is Marquette West Rotary’s major fund raiser. For the past 3 year we have raised annually over $35,000 which we grant back to overĀ 45 Governmental, non-profit agencies to do amazing activities to make Marquette County a better place to live. Besides the money raised, it is looked forward to by the community as one of the great events of Summer in the City of Marquette. Even though it takes a great deal of work on the part of the members of Marquette West Rotary to make HarborFest happen we are proud to bring this unique event to the people of the Upper Peninsula.
