Discover Presque Isle is Erie’s biggest celebration for the breathtaking, expansive natural wonder.
The new format includes seven days of events that will highlight Presque Isle State Park’s many offerings.
An events schedule is not yet available, as of early June, but it promises to include many areas of the park and provide “family-friendly recreational and educational opportunities” — guided hikes, archery, pancake breakfasts, live music, sand sculpture competition, a giant bonfire and Presque Isle Lighthouse tours.
Most events are free and open to the public. Donations are welcome.
New this year: There will be no artist and vendor market.
“This difficult decision is due to capacity limitations resulting from the ever-increasing visitor attendance at Presque Isle in late July each year,” Discover Presque Isle officials said.
Organizers said they are working on other plans to include artists and vendors in a separate event in 2023.
