Frankfort and Elberta, located on beautiful Betsie Bay are known for their friendly and helpful businesses, abundance of dining choices, quaint shops, fun events and fabulous fishing.

There is something for everyone in the Frankfort-Elberta area, miles of Lake Michigan beach for sunbathing, walking, picnicking or just enjoying the spectacular sunsets. If you are looking for more adventure, there is hang gliding from the bluffs of Elberta or you can take a glider ride with one of the members of the Northwest Soaring Club located at the Dow Memorial Airport, just outside the Frankfort City limits.

In July and August you can bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the Concerts in the Park. On Wednesday evening the music will be coming from the bandstand in Elberta’s Historical Waterfront Park. On Friday evenings the concerts are at the Mineral Springs Park in Frankfort snug against the shore of Betsie Bay.

During the summer months both communities come alive with Art & Craft Fairs and Car Shows. For a complete listing of events, accommodations and other information about the Frankfort-Elberta area contact the Frankfort-Elberta Chamber of Commerce at (231) 352-7251 or visit our website at
