Torch Lake Whitefish Fest Returns This Weekend

The second annual Torch Lake Whitefish Fest is back, with more art and more attractions.

This Saturday and Sunday at Depot Park in Alden, over 40 local artists will be showcasing and selling their work.

From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, they will also have a Whitefish tasting competition.

Organizers say that many of the artists have had difficulty selling their work amidst the pandemic, but expect a good turnout at the event from those visiting Northern Michigan.

“You know they’re not traveling to Europe or the other countries and doing their vacations, they’re now staying closer to home, and kind of adding things to their house a lot more than I think they would normally do,” said —-. “It’s been pretty good like I said we were in Memorial Day in Walloon and it was gangbusters for all of the artists.”

Whitefish Fest is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
