Fisherman's Picnic 


This is way more than just shore lunch! It’s the annual Fisherman’s Picnic, Grand Marais and Cook County's annual community get-together, sponsored by the local Lion's Club, and featuring, fun for the whole family, and of course fish burgers! (locally caught Lake Superior herring sandwiches).

The annual Fisherman's Picnic in Grand Marais has been going on for over 90 years. The Picnic as we know it today can be mainly attributed to the Grand Marais Lions Club who has shouldered the responsibility of sponsoring, organizing and presenting this event since 1952.

For locals, the Picnic is a time for reconnecting with old friends, family, and classmates. It's also a time for making new friends and welcoming the visitors to our town. If you find yourself standing in a line for a fish burger, ask the person behind you “Where are you from?” If they aren’t a tourist they could very well be someone you went to school with but didn’t recognize!
