Lunch is not included in the Grand Garden Show Package

Located inside Grand Hotel on the lower level, Grand Coffee & Provisions is a casual dining option offering grab-n-go food and beverages for every meal throughout your day. Grab a quick salad or sandwich before the afternoon garden tours.

Please see these dining options: Grand Ways to Lunch.


We highly recommend traveling with our Grand Garden Show sponsor, Shepler’s Mackinac Island Ferry. Shepler’s takes passengers from port to island in less than half an hour.

Receive a discounted ferry rate if you mention that you are attending the Grand Garden Show. There are taxi transfers in the downtown area to the hotel, if staying at Grand Hotel for an additional cost.
