Discover Presque Isle
Jul. 24-30, 2023
Discover Presque Isle hits the park for a non-stop fun-filled week for the 29th year! As always, Discover Presque Isle's goal is to encourage the community to "discover" the park in new ways and to raise awareness of its rich offerings.
Discover Presque Isle also provides an opportunity to give something back to the park in appreciation for all it has given to us over the years. Please seek out our button & t-shirt tents and donate generously - money raised benefits the park through Presque Isle Partnership projects - projects focused on improving and expanding accessibility for all visitors, enhancing park amenities to create a more enjoyable experience, ensuring public safety, preserving the park's rich history, providing educational opportunities, and fostering a culture of conservation.
While most programs are free, donations are encouraged and appreciated as they help to further the Presque Isle Partnership mission.
