Discover Presque Isle (DPI) is an annual three day celebration of Presque Isle State Park hosted by the Presque Isle Partnership (PIP). PIP is a non-profit organization working to enhance the visitor experience at Presque Isle by developing, funding and implementing projects and programs on the Park while protecting the natural environment. DPI serves as our largest annual fundraiser and has resulted in a variety of park improvement projects!
DPI aims to bring awareness to the Park’s diverse natural ecosystems, numerous recreational opportunities, and helps educate visitors on the importance of preserving our natural environment. Over the past five years, attendance on Presque Isle throughout DPI weekend is estimated to average more than 100,000.
The celebration occupies key points throughout the 3,200 acre sandy peninsula where one will encounter the craft & artisan show, local food and beverage vendors, take part in family friendly nature awareness activities, experience live music on the beach, a sand sculpture competition, enjoy a giant bonfire, tour the Presque Isle Lighthouse, and so much more! This year will mark the 28th
anniversary of the three day celebration of Presque Isle State Park.
