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.
The fall colors have been spectacular this year! Hundreds of people trekked along the Jordan Valley, Pinney Bridge, Landslide Creek, and our very own Deadman's Hill, one of the most popular and most sought out scenic overlooks, especially in the Fall. Farmers Markets are still open around the county, including Mancelona's on Thursday afternoons from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the intersection of U.S. 131 and M-88 (State Street). All the details are on the calendar of events tab; Mancelona's will be open through October.
Mancelona Buck Pole is coming up so quick now. Our 64th event is November 15-16. It has been a huge success every year, and was voted the most popular Buck Pole in Northern Michigan by viewers on a local TV station a few years back. It's not just one thing that has made our Buck Pole a success - it's many! The hunters come back year after year. They are friends, they are family. We have gotten to know so many of you throughout the years - it is always good to see you in November. Our businesses dig deep into their pockets and give the best prizes for the raffles, and to the hunters who register at the Buck Pole. We have the National Rifle Association's (NRA) support each year who provide valuable prizes so that every hunter goes home with something regardless of the size of their deer. Just for the $5 registration fee, the hunter goes home with a bag filled with stuff valued $30 or more. You get more bang for your buck in Mancelona! Follow our Buck Pole pages for contest information and upates.
BUCK POLE RAFFLE TICKETS - are in stores now! Stop in at Tri Gas, Moore Plumbing and Heating, Mancelona Hardware, Mancelona True Value Hardware, Mancelona Sports, 4Front Credit Union, Mancelona Moose Lodge or the Pizza Shoppe. We also have a few folks selling tickets throughout town. If you live out of the area, call us at 231-587-5500 and we'll make arrangements to get you some. Grand Prize is $1,000 cash!
