Join us September 4, 2021 for the annual Manistee LaborFest at First St. Beach

Hosted by the Salt City Rock & Blues, non-profit organization, for the express benefit of constructing a public amphitheater between First Street Beach and Douglas Park. The LaborFest is a celebration of the region’s rich industrial history and the laborers who support the Salt, Lumber & Sand industries.

This year’s event will kick-off with a car show and parade from the Armory Center to First Street Beach, where family events will be taking place from 1:00-11:00pm. It’s going to be a fun filled day! Live music all day, craft beer, food trucks and more!
