Last year more than 40 vendors from all over the Midwest offered the best in Michigan’s Petoskey stones and other rocks and minerals were just some of the features offered to those who attended last year’s Antrim County Petoskey Stone Festival.


EASTPORT – If you spend any amount of time along the northern shores of Michigan, chances are you’ve been lucky enough to find a Petoskey Stone. 

The remnants of an ancient fossil reef, these beautiful stones can be found along the shores of our Great Lakes, primarily along the Lake Michigan coast, and can be a magical discovery to a new Petoskey enthusiast who discovers one for the first time. 

Those who would like to see thousands of stones in all forms, many of them made into beautiful jewelry, furniture, and cutlery as well as other home and garden accessories, should plan on visiting this week’s annual Petoskey Stone Festival at Barnes Park Campground in Eastport, on Saturday, May 27 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
