Mackinac Island Fudge Festival – August 24 – 26, 2018

Calling all Fudgies!!!

For more than a century, Mackinac Island’s fudge has been an institution that’s become famous worldwide. Fudge devotees are known as “fudgies” – a term that is also synonymous with Northern Michigan tourists. Most people don’t need an excuse to indulge in a piece or two of creamy, decadent fudge. But, for those who do, the Mackinac Island Fudge Festival which takes place each August, offers Island dwellers and tourists a terrific reason to celebrate fudge – made fresh each day at Mackinac’s multitude of fudge shops.

The festival features a number of family fun fudge-related activities including:

  • Fudge Making Demonstrations & Tasting
