Each August, Boyne Falls hosts the annual Boyne Falls Polish Festival. The festival features many events including a rodeo, 3 on 3 basketball tournament, parade, amusement rides, a flea market, and the Mud Run. A large tent placed on the corner of Railroad st. and Center st. known as the "Beer Tent" is the location of most of the festivials nightly activies. Each evening the tent fills with patrons that come to listen and dance to a variety of polish music and entertainment. The Festival is always held the first weekend in August.
Boyne Falls is also home to Boyne Mountain - a ski & golf resort, Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark, Solace Spa, and several wonderful restaurants - which recently celebrated its 60th anniversary.
