Paradise, Michigan was founded in 1925 and is situated on the western shores of Lake Superior’s Whitefish Bay just north of the Tahquamenon River mouth. After a major fire stormed the Whitefish Point area in 1922, blueberries moved in and became a staple for locals and visitors alike.
August 20 - 22, 2021
Each year during the third weekend in August we celebrate a part of our local heritage, wild blueberries. An art fair, entertainment, and wonderful local food are part of the festivities. The celebration also showcases informative programs of music, nature, and lore all featuring local history.
Tahquamenon Falls State Park encompasses close to 50,000 acres stretching over 13 miles. Most of this is undeveloped woodland without roads, buildings or power lines. The centerpiece of the park, and the very reason for its existence, is the Tahquamenon River with its waterfalls.
