Visit Muskegon presents the 15th Annual “Depot to Depot Fall Color Tour”. For three Saturdays we invite you to celebrate the vibrant autumn colors of Muskegon County’s trees, dunes and water! Drive your car, or bike, along a self-guided route following the Lake Michigan shoreline and West Michigan Pike Byway. Visit historic sites, welcoming businesses and enjoy nature. This event is FREE! Participants will receive fall refreshments, coupons to area businesses, collectible postcards and free pumpkins for the little ones (while supplies last).
Pick up your map at either historic Depot. Enter to win prizes by having your map stamped at 10 designated stops. Check in on social media for more chances to win! The Muskegon Union Depot is home to Visit Muskegon (Muskegon County Convention & Visitors Bureau). The White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is also housed in a historic train depot.
Come enjoy the talents of our community, or share the talents you have! It’s your night to be a star. All types of performances are welcome; poetry reading, music, comedy, etc. If you are interested in showcasing your art, please register at hackleylibrary.org or call the HPL Reference desk at 231-722-8011. Walk-ins are also welcome! Not interested in the spotlight? Come just to listen.
Winners from our Write for Fright contest will be awarded during Open Mic Night!
Interdisciplinary NYC based artist Helina Metaferia will speak about her artwork.
NOTE: An application is required to participate in this workshop. You can submit an application here.
From the Artist: “I can offer a performance workshop similar to what I have done at Michigan State University which focuses on working with women of color on campus (staff, students, and faculty). We look at how tension and trauma gets held in the body due to systemic and institutional oppression, and then we create methods for release through performance art. I am actually touring this workshop to colleges and photographing participants to be included in future collage work. Female identifying student and faculty of color organizations on campus are invited to participate, and sometimes help organize the event.”

Hoping to learn more about your art, antiques, and collectibles? Appraisers from DuMouchelle Art Galleries Co., Detroit, will be on hand to evaluate collectibles, jewelry, and antiques, combining decades of professional experience in many areas. (DuMouchelle appraisers also appear on Antiques Roadshow.) Appraisers will offer verbal evaluations for $15 per item or set of items ($12 for MMA members). The fee includes museum admission. Written appraisals cannot be provided at this event, but Appraisal Fair is an inexpensive opportunity that can help you know if it would be worthwhile to pay to get a written appraisal on an item for sales or insurance reasons.
Please, no vintage or antique guns, swords, or other weapons. Limit of three items per person, please.
