The quaint and simple atmosphere of Cedar, Michigan, makes it a special place for locals and tourists alike. Known for its rich Polish heritage, there are plenty of things to do and sites to see in Cedar, Michigan.
One of the events that Cedar, Michigan, is known for is its annual Polka Festival, put on by the Cedar Chamber of Commerce. The village spends four nights celebrating its Polish heritage with over 4,000 attendees. This year will mark the 40th annual Polka Fest Celebration. Enjoy music from some of the best Polka Bands in America and a fun and upbeat Polish atmosphere. Food vendors serve beer, ribs, popcorn, and hotdogs, and there is always plenty of fun for the children.
Outside of the well-known Polka Festival, Cedar hosts hidden gems for visitors and locals to enjoy all year long. One unique option is to enjoy the three-mile-long Cedar River Waterway. The community has worked tirelessly to improve the park areas, the access point, and the fish habitat in Cedar. So grab a kayak or paddle board and enjoy the only universally accessible water access on the Cedar River in Leelanau County as it winds through a wilderness sanctuary to Lake Leelanau.
