Caseville’s 25th Shanty Days February 2017

It’s Shanty Days Silver Anniversary!

The middle of winter is celebrated and imbibed in the cold of February off the shores of the frozen Saginaw Bay. Caseville’s annual Shanty Days Festival kicks off the 2017 year of fun in Key North. 

Shanty Days 2015

Shanty Days was Postponed in 2015

Don’t be left out in the cold. The 2017 Shanty Days in Caseville promises to be eventful even if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Events are all weekend long at the Saginaw Bay Marina and the Caseville County Park including the popular Polar Bear dip cut from a hole in the ice at the marina. Two years ago the 2015 Caseville Shanty Days theme was “Let’s Get Flaky” which proved to be fun and  matched with some of the crazy events over the three blustery days. 2015 was also the first time that the iconic event was postponed for a week due to sub-zero temperatures and blizzard conditions.
