mackinac island fudge festival

 Fudge Festival Getaway

While fudge was not invented on Mackinac Island, Mackinac Island’s fudge has become the most popular fudge in America. In the nineteenth century, maple sugar sweets were manufactured by the local Odawa in nearby L’Arbor Croche, packaged in birchbark containers called mokuks and shipped from Mackinac Island in steamships touring the Great Lakes to the confectioners in the big cities of America. Tourists wanted something regional; something made on Mackinac rather than something they could easily buy at home. Harry Murdick listened and in the late 1880s opened Murdick’s Candy Kitchen. Using marble slabs with the kitchen cooling fans blowing the smell of cooking candy onto the streets, Harry’s sons Rome and Gould turned fudge making into a wonderfully scented spectator sport.

There are over fifteen fudge stores on Mackinac Island today and it is now an Island institution that is now known worldwide. Join us August 21-23, 2015 for the Mackinac Island Fudge Festival.  The Festival features many exciting events including fudge-ilicious craft cocktails created at island bars and restaurants, Market Street Gallery Walk and Meet and Greet, and the golden ticket contest at select fudge shops.

  • Round Trip Ferry Tickets on the Star Line
