Activities also include horse-drawn carriage rides, holiday shopping, family craft activities and performances by over 70 area music, theatre, and dance groups.

One of the oldest arts organizations in Michigan, The Scarab Club has been dedicated to serving the public and Michigan artists of all disciplines for nearly 100 years. On the cusp of its centennial in 2007, the club accomplishes this mission through concerts, lectures, exhibitions, special events, and tours. The Scarab Club strives to promote local artists, emerging and experienced. It also hosts a variety of educational and instructional events.

Works by Michigan artists are always on display in the galleries. Each year the club sponsors a photography exhibition, as well as the prestigious Gold Medal and Silver Medal exhibitions of painting and sculpture. The main gallery also hosts major state-wide juried exhibitions as well as local, individual and group shows. Member exhibitions are shown in the second floor lounge gallery.

The Scarab Club is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, tax exempt organization.
