For local cuisine in the UP, you can’t get more iconic than a pasty! Get ready to visit Calumet next weekend, Saturday, August 20th for the 18th annual Pasty Fest. From the producers of the event:
The iconic pasty is triumphantly fest-ed in Downtown Calumet! Join us for a Saturday of unique fun as we celebrate the area’s signature dish. Events include the annual best pasty competition, food vendors (of course multiple pasties!), parade, eating competition, and more! Just like a pasty, this event is fit for all ages and should be taken in RIGHT AWAY!
For a schedule of events and more info, visit the Main Street Calumet website.
