The Mackinac Island Lilac Festival, which began as a one-day event in 1949, has now grown to a ten-day festival celebrating the Island’s lilac collection and much more. We will leave SVSU bright and early via motorcoach and then take a Shepler’s ferry over to the Island. A horse-drawn taxi will take you to the Grand Hotel for the legendary Grand Luncheon Buffet which features hot and cold entrees, seafood, salad, pastries and more. After lunch, you will have the balance of the day to explore Mackinac Island and enjoy this unique place and the scent of lilacs. We’ll leave the Island at 5 p.m. and return to SVSU around 9 p.m. Our package includes the ferry ride, a horse-drawn taxi to the Grand Hotel, the buffet lunch, and motorcoach transportation from SVSU.
Thursday: June 12 from 7:30 a.m. - 9 p.m.
