Welcome to the Town of Jacksonport

Spring through winter, people flock to Jacksonport to line up for kolaches at Maifest, sample dew-fresh produce at the weekly farmer’s market, shop for unique art works at Cherry Fest, cheer at the Thanksgiving Day parade or plunge into Lake Michigan with the Polar Bears on New Year’s Day.

While these signature events put our town on the map, there is so much more to Jacksonport.

Our newly enhanced website — Jacksonport.org — provides tourists and residents alike a deeper understanding of our community. Here you can learn about our history, system of governance, economic base, community organizations and natural assets.

A key part of Jacksonport.org is its digital bulletin board of civic information: meeting agendas and minutes; ordinances and policies; and names and contact information for elected and appointed officials. As a township, our residents participate directly in government decision making, such as approving the annual budget and voting on property tax levies. Jacksonport.org helps keep citizens informed and involved.

One of the best things about Jacksonport —  a stroll along the beach.

The website also promotes our local businesses and seasonal events, and it recognizes the groups and organizations that distinguish Jacksonport as a community grounded in volunteerism.

Welcome to our scenic, civic-minded, neighborly community.
