SUTTONS BAY: On Saturday, June 27th from 5:30 – 8:30 pm, bring the whole family to Black Star Farms’ Suttons Bay location for the Family Farm Daze Fish Boil.

“We have our traditional Great Lakes Fish Boils every summer Friday, but we wanted to create an extra-special version for families,” explained Black Star Farms Event Manager Stephanie Wiitala. “There’s nothing like an authentic fish boil. The boil-off is spectacular and exciting, and you can’t beat fresh Lake Michigan whitefish and trout hot from the kettle.”

Two very special guests will be a pair of Wings of Wonder Ambassador raptors, giving attendees a rare chance to see magnificent birds of prey “up close and personal.” A portion of every ticket will support Wings of Wonder’s raptor education, rehabilitation and research. In addition to being able to see the farm animals at Black Star Farms up close, there will be a range of activities including face painting, chalk art and yard games.

Dinner features fresh Lake Michigan whitefish and trout served with local vegetables, coleslaw and a delicious summer berry shortcake. Kids can enjoy grilled hot dogs or the fish. Complimentary non-alcohol beverages including lemonade & tea and ice water will be provided, and attendees may purchase wine, hard cider or a specialty cocktail from a cash bar.

Tickets for the Family Farm Daze Fish Boil are $20 for adults and $10 for children (under 3 are free). You can get more information and a link to reserve tickets through MyNorth Tickets at or by calling 231-944-1258.

Thanks to the expansive Pegasus Barn, the event takes place rain or shine.
