Hear ye! Hear ye! Our 15th annual public art exhibit will turn our Lake Michigan resort town into “The Magical Kingdom of St. Joseph” from May 18 to Sept. 20. The mayor has decreed that young, old and middle ages will have a royal good time seeking 15 enchanting sculptures of dragons, brave knights and a kid-size castle along downtown sidewalks. These original pieces of art painted by area artists will be perfect for taking whimsical selfies and creating make-believe adventures for the entire family.

Silver Harbor Root Beer

If you’re not a fan of beer, wine or hand-crafted cocktails you might think that the Makers Trail isn’t for you. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. There are over 30 locations to choose from and each one brings something different to the table. Here’s why each one is worth a try.

One of the rarest treats in Southwest Michigan is our ice wine and it can be found at several locations along the Makers Trail. Some describe this type of wine as liquid gold. Others dessert in a glass. All say it is mmm-marvelous!
