The 51st Annual Sidewalk Sales provides our Downtown merchants with the opportunity to move their stores into the streets, and present their wares in a traditional, old-fashioned sidewalk sales venue.  As always, streets in Downtown Petoskey will be closed off to everything but foot traffic and sidewalk dining options in our fabulous restaurants are available. 

Sales are Friday, July 29 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday, July 30 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

In addition to the lure of great bargains in an outdoor festival environment, Sidewalk Sales will also provide entertainment for the entire family with the Farmers Market on Friday on Howard Street between Mitchell and Michigan Streets from 8:30 a.m. to mid-afternoon. In Pennsylvania Park, the Charlotte Ross Lee Concerts in the Park will feature music at noon on Friday.

Saturday, July 30th is the last day to complete the Where’s Waldo Scavenger Hunt in Downtown Petoskey. A final celebration will be held in Pennsylvania Park at 11 a.m. to hold the prize drawings with treats and games for the kids. Where’s Waldo Passports can be turned in to the Downtown Offices until 10 a.m. on Saturday or at the Where’s Waldo Party in Pennsylvania Park at 11 a.m.

There will be a Movie in the Park at Dark on Friday, July 29th.
