PICTURED ROCKS DAYS- June 8 and 9, 2019
Sat. 10am – 6pm | Sun. 9:30am – 4pm


Plans are underway for 2019 Pictured Rocks Days.  We are again offering a two-day event, taking place on Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th.  Pictured Rocks Cruises will be offering “Yoopers Ride Free Days” on both days.  They are again offering free rides to the first 1,250 Yoopers each day – first come, first served (weather permitting) – in addition to their regular paying customers.  We will again have free music, food vendors, bounce houses, kayak demos, petting zoo and other various forms of entertainment, activities and information.

If you (or anyone you know) would like to be a vendor, please complete page 2 of the VENDOR APPLICATION PDF and return it with your payment to reserve your booth.  An application is not considered complete, and your spot is not reserved, until your payment is received.  Page 1 gives basic rules and information for your use.  Please read it carefully and hang onto it for future reference.  All two-day vendors will have preferential booth placement.  All booths will be assigned in the order they are received and placed according to electrical needs.  If you have a booth preference, please make note and we will try to accommodate your request.  

We will have several volunteers on hand to help with setup.  They can help unpack your vehicle and set up tents, tables, etc.  Due to space constraints at Bayshore Park, you will not be able to have your vehicle at your booth.  You will be instructed where to park after you unload your vehicle.  As most of you know, electrical outlets are extremely limited in Bayshore Park.  Please request electrical hook-up only if necessary.  If you have any questions regarding the various types of plug-ins, or any other questions, please contact us.  

If overnight lodging is needed, please make your reservations (hotel/motel or camping) as soon as possible.


  • Make your way down the the water where Carl Hansen owner of Northern Waters Adventures will be offering free kayak demos. What a great way to get a feel for a sea kayak before deciding to take a pictured rocks tour.


  • Join Rosco the clown in making balloon animals and watch closely as he has a few magic tricks up his sleeve.
