Then from 12 to 2:00 p.m. see what the best professional and amateur chefs on the Island have to offer – sample a wide variety of treats. And check out arts and crafts in the BIC Center with more music to follow on the weekend.

It’s a great weekend to enjoy fall colors with temperatures still moderate as the lake keeps us warm later than the mainland. Come Discover Beaver Island in the fall and have some fun!
