Mancelona Chamber of Commerce
Mancelona Regional Chamber of Commerce and all its members welcome you to our community. Mancelona is located in the northwest region of Michigan's lower peninsula, in beautiful Antrim County.
It is 2015. The new year is here and January started out with some good snowfall. This is great news for our winter visitors and local economy. Skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobile riding, sledding and ice fishing represent the most popular of winter time activities here in northern Michigan. Organizations and individuals coordinate numerous events to keep you busy and entertained during your visit. The annual White Pine Stampede, snowmobile drag races throughout the area, Shanty Creek's "Slush Cup" and "Cardboard Classic" and the Schuss Mountain Snow Challenge (truck hill climb) are a few of the favorites. (For details on these events please visit the Community Calendar for dates, links and event contacts). When snowmobiling through the area, make the Jordan River Valley, Deadman's Hill, Jordan River National Fish Hatchery and Landslide Creek a part of your plans. They provide some of the most scenic views. For your convenience, Jordan River National Fish Hatchery leaves their welcome center open 24/7 giving riders access to a place to warm up. Restrooms are open. Coffee and hot chocolate are available for no cost. We welcome you to Mancelona, and hope your visit is a safe and enjoyable one!

Year around there are outdoor activities and events for you to experience. In May, morel mushrooms begin to pop out of the ground, trees begin to bud, flowers start blooming. Mancelona is well known for the annual Bass Festival held the week-end following Memorial Day. On November 15 and 16 each year, we hold our Buck Pole hunting contest. On Saturday and Sunday November 15 and 16, 2014, we celebrated our 60th annual Buck Pole! In winter, thousands of snowmobilers travel the trails in and around Mancelona, Pinney Bridge, Jordan River Valley, Lakes of the North and Starvation Lake where we have some of the most beautiful, well groomed trails. Each February, hundreds of skiers participate in the annual White Pine Stampede, a point to point race beginning in Mancelona, and ending at Shanty Creek.
