Grand Hotel History Weekend – September 18 – 20, 2020

Grand Hotel History Weekend

You’re invited to Grand Hotel’s 12th Annual History Weekend with a unique look into the story behind the wood structure built in 1887 as Grand Hotel celebrates its 134th Anniversary in 2020.

Saturday morning Bob Tagatz, Grand Hotel’s Resident Historian will take you on a fascinating journey through the history of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel. Mr. Tagatz, named Historic Hotels of America 2014 Historian of the Year, is a natural storyteller who will intrigue you with information about the hotel’s history and how the island and the hotel came to be what they are today.

Saturday afternoon take part in a special history presentation. Stay tuned for 2020 presentation details!

All guests will enjoy evening receptions and a full breakfast and dinner daily as well as the legendary Grand Luncheon Buffet on Saturday.

Fall is a great time of year to experience the solitude of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel. We hope to see you for this special event to celebrate the history of Grand Hotel.
