The historic village of Grand Marais, Michigan is located on the south shore of Lake Superior at the eastern gateway to Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. Our green springs, warm summers, beautiful autumns, and snowy winters make Grand Marais a year-round recreation destination.

The 2015 Grand Marais Music and Arts Festival will be held August 14th-16th. The Festival is always held on the second FULL weekend of August (a full weekend includes Friday). Because August 1st is on Saturday this year, the Music Festival is moved back. Please mark your calendars so you don't miss the fun!

The Township is conducting a survey in order to gather information on the use and desires for recreational facilities in Burt Township. The Township is going to use the results of the survey to update the Township's Recreation Plan. Participation in this survey is extremely important. The recreation plan is what the Township uses when determining what projects get completed first and it is also an important part when we apply for grant money. Click here to download and print this one-page survey. The survey is in PDF format.
The survey is being distributed through the newspaper, online, and at Peoples
State Bank. Surveys can be returned to the Township at the Township Hall,
through the mail (PO Box 430, Grand Marais, MI 49839), or via Fax (906)
