WESTERN MICHIGAN FAIR is excited to have T.J. Schmidt & Company back as our 2015 carnival provider. Fairs in Mason County can be traced back to the 1870s. However the present location hosted it’s first fair in 1936.

The S.S. Badger offers the largest cross-lake passenger service on the Great Lakes and an authentic steamship experience. The relaxing four-hour, 60-mile cruise takes passengers, autos, RVs, tour buses, motorcycles, bicycles, and commercial trucks across Lake Michigan between Ludington, Michigan and Manitowoc, Wisconsin.


Ludington House Bed & Breakfast was built by Antoine Cartier, a lumber baron. He had come to the Ludington area from Quebec in 1852 to seek his fortune and in 1878 built this magnificent home for his wife, Eliza and their nine children.
