Events & Festivals


There is always something to do in Delta County. There are a wide range of events held throughout the year from large to small.  Please visit our Delta Chamber of Commerce Events Calendar for a full list of Events.

There are many small town celebrations throughout the year. Rapid River hosts events on Memorial Day Weekend.  Gladstone and Escanaba grab the attention at the Fourth of July, as does Nahma and Bark River. Rock is famous for its Labor Day celebration and Christmas gets its start in Escanaba with a big parade.
