Visit Keweenaw promotes Michigan’s Houghton and Keweenaw Counties as a destination for tourism. Tourism, and the broader visitor economy, generate social, cultural and financial benefits for our community members and is a pillar of the region’s economy. Formed in 1986 as the Keweenaw Tourism Council, later the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau and now Visit Keweenaw – we’ve been the region’s leading destination marketing organization for more than 35 years.
Visit Keweenaw is a leader in knowledge of outdoor recreation. Thousands of people each year come through the welcome center asking questions about the area, and talking about everything they want to see. Being at the forefront of travelers, tourism trends and outdoor recreation, Visit Keweenaw invests in its communities through Destination Development Awards.
Helping coordinate and execute high-energy events is something Visit Keweenaw has been assisting with. Calumet’s Pasty Fest, Houghton’s Jibba Jabba and From the Ground Festival were all instances of Visit Keweenaw helping promote and market events to the public and broader visitor area. Bringing in locals and visitors to events are important to diversify your crowds and spenders in your economy.
Visit Keweenaw encourages visitors to Leave No Trace in the Keweenaw, recreate responsibly and find new favorites when you adventure north.
Visit Keweenaw supports Pasty Fest because it’s an incredible event that fills Calumet’s historic 5th Street and brings smiles to the whole village. Events like Pasty Fest speak to the cultural and historical significance of an area and its people. Bringing visitors to an area familiarizes them with a new destination and allows them to support locally owned businesses and cultural icons – like the pasty!
