Discover Presque Isle

Jul. 21-25, 2021


Discover Presque Isle, organized under a new event format, will highlight the park’s countless offerings beginning Wednesday, July 21 and continue daily through Sunday, July 25. The multi-day celebration aims to draw attention to the Park’s numerous recreational opportunities and diverse natural ecosystems, and to educate visitors on the importance of protecting our natural environment.

The event occupies numerous areas of the park and offers more than 20 different family friendly recreational and educational opportunities such as guided hikes, archery, pancake breakfasts, live music, sand sculpture competition, giant bonfire, and Presque Isle Lighthouse tours.

While nearly all programs are free, donations are encouraged and appreciated. Visitors can support the Presque Isle Partnership by purchasing a limited edition 100th Anniversary wood chip as part of the Partnership’s newly introduced “Chip in for Presque Isle” wood chip program.
