Getting to Festival & Parking
The festival is held at Leland Harbor on Lake Michigan, next to Historic Fishtown in Leland – Approximately 25-30 miles from Traverse City. Details There is not a designated parking area for the festival, and there are no fees to park in Leland. We reccommend parking along M-22 – or on the north end of downtown, turn east on Pearl (at Post Office) for 1 block to park in Leland Public School parking lots.
2017 Festival Poster
For 32 years Leland Wine & Food Festival collectible posters have been embellished by local artists. The 2017 poster artist was selected via a Facebook vote by you! Congratulations to Stephanie Schlatter! Her 'Leelanau Cellars' painting will adorn the 2017 poster – available at the festival, on this website (along with previous Wine Fest posters) in spring 2017 or at Tampico, Leelanau Books, and Good Harbor Winery in Leland, spring 2017.
