Fort Mackinac Schedule...

includes many activities throughout the day. 

Insider Tip: During the summer months at 9:30 in the morning and 6:00 in the evening, scout troops serving as Governor's Honor Guards will raise and lower the flags on Fort Mackinac's site.

This ceremony is a special daily event and is a quiet tribute to our flag, to our country and to these young scouts. It's a nice "educational" moment for parents to share with their children.

Another one of our very favorite moments during any day on the Island happens promptly at 10:00pm every evening.  Taps is played from Fort Mackinac and the sound is beautiful!
