Discover Presque Isle

Jul. 25-31, 2022


Discover Presque Isle, organized under a new event format, will highlight the park’s rich offerings. The multi-day celebration occupies several areas of the park and offers dozens of family friendly recreational and educational opportunities such as guided hikes, archery, catered 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.

Note to Vendors: The Discover Presque Isle planning committee has chosen to forgo a craft/artisan vendor component of DPI moving forward. This difficult decision is due to capacity limitations resulting from the ever-increasing visitor attendance at Presque Isle in late July each year.

Please note, however, we are working towards the creation of a stand-alone craft and food vendor festival in the future, held separately from Discover Presque Isle.

We sincerely thank all who have participated in DPI in past years and hope to see you again in the coming years! Stay tuned.
