During The Annual Tip-Up Town Festival!

 January 21st, 22nd and 28th

The Houghton Lake community has been host to Tip-Up Town USA since 1951. For 71 years families have enjoyed Michigan's largest winter festival making it a tradition where memories are made.

The festival gets its name from a device used in ice fishing call a “tip up.” The device is attached to a fishing pole, and when a fish is attached, the flag attached to the device “tips up” to let the person fishing know that there is something on their line. The ice fishing contest is open to everyone of all ages.

In addition to ice fishing, patrons can also enjoy live music, magicians, face painting, games, shopping at different vendors, and more.

Join us for this fun, annual celebration! Book your hotel room with us online today...
