Festivals and Events
Each year Downtown Grayling hosts events ranging from clean-up days to 5-day festivals, and every sort of gathering in-between! Whether the target is to raise funds for programming, bring the community together, or offer training and education, the best place to host it, or find it, is Downtown Grayling.
We strive to partner with extraordinary groups around our community to offer a wide range of activities and programming to serve the greatest number of residents, business owners, and visitors possible.
Many of our events are designed to engage folks in our downtown commercial area and promote: shopping local, friendly neighbors, and community pride. One of our primary goals in Downtown Grayling is to create a sense of place that invokes vibrant everlasting memories. The kind of memories that keep you coming back for more.
