Summer in the City Rounding Board

Summer in the City

The long-awaited summer season arrives with much anticipation. We fill the warmer days with carefree, outdoor activities. The City of St. Joseph honors the glory of nature with many festivities and events all season long.

As summer vacations begin, people flock to our shores. We offer some of the best family beaches in the nation. And when you’re not on the beach, you can hunt for antiques along the bluff, bring home fresh-picked fruits and vegetables from the farmers’ market, listen to live music performances, enjoy a refreshing ice cream cone or watch a brilliant sunset night after night.

Festival season goes full blast on July 4th when the night sky bursts with colorful fireworks over Lake Michigan. The following weekend, more than 200 artists set up booths along the bluff as part of the highly acclaimed Krasl Art Show. More than 70,000 people enjoy the two-day show. 

August brings Chalk the Block and a classic car show. Then, all too fast, Labor Day Weekend arrives with the Tri-State Regatta, a sailboat race from Chicago, Ill. to St. Joseph, Mich. to Michigan City, Ind. to Chicago. Watching the colorful sails leave port on Sunday morning is a sight to behold. The weekend may mark the end of summer, but never the end of fun in the city.

The Summer in the City Rounding Board is still available for sponsorship.
