Are there additional costs associated with the event?


Lunch is not included in the Grand Garden Show Package.

Please see these dining options: 9 ways to lunch.

There is also a choice of tasty picnic box luncheons. Place your order prior with the Maitre d’Hotel at the entrance to the Main Dining Room by 9:00 p.m. on the previous evening. Please note that box luncheons are available to Grand Hotel guests only.


Carriage rides are available for the private garden tours ~ Please see Register page for additional information.


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.
