Onekama Days Every August


Each August, the “Two Lake Town” of Onekama bustles with a variety of activities for the annual Onekama Days. Onekama is located in the northern part of Manistee County, about 20 minutes north of Manistee on M-22. Highlights of the festival include fireworks, arts/crafts show, pig roast, community yard sales, classic car show, 1 mile & 5k runs, tennis tournament, dance party, demolition derby and parade.
