The 2020-2021 Winter Season on Mackinac Island is different than any other year in recent memory. There will be no organized events that promote large public gatherings.

A list of winter businesses is provided below. Please keep in mind that the ferry schedule is limited during the winter time and the ferry will run as long as the ice conditions in the Straits allow. Once the ferry stops, the island is accessible by plane. Public restrooms are not available November – late April.
