It’s Almost Time For The 85th National Trout Festival in Kalkaska

Kalkaska is getting ready for the 85th National Trout Festival.

It starts Wednesday, April 20, and runs through Sunday, April 24.

During the festival, some of the events include a carnival, flea market, kids fishing pod, car show, and parade.

Tickets for the carnival are on sale now at a discounted price.

“This is the biggest event this community has, and everything we make stays in this community,” said Diana Needham, President of the National Trout Festival. “It’s a great time to bring out your kids’ family. There are always family things to do. We try and keep it as family-oriented as much as we can.”
