Come to Tawas and check out the boats, meet the drivers, and experience the thrill of the races. But the Heritage Coast Grand Prix event is so much more than a boat race! From Thursday through Sunday evening, every day is chock-full of activities as diverse as a children’s bouncy playground, bonfire concerts on the beach, a community block party, a racer meet and greet, an arts and craft show, a wine and ale tasting party, historical nautical and boating displays, professional sandcastle builds and clinics, a boat parade and more. Visit for a complete schedule of events so you don’t miss any of the fun.
