The spectacle.

The gallantry. 

The tradition.

These are the things that attract more than a million people to Grand Haven each year for the Coast Guard Festival.

The event serves as a homing beacon, calling the crowds back year after year to enjoy family-friendly activities and honor our Coast Guard brethren.

So make the time. Enjoy the time with friends, neighbors and family.
