About Us

The Village of Colon, Michigan is located in the eastern half of St. Joseph County. We are a little less than 2 square miles in area and have close to 1,200 residents. We are surrounded by water, with Sturgeon and Palmer Lakes and Swan Creek within the Village limits offering numerous recreational opportunities. During the warm weather months our population swells with cottage residents.

We are proudly known as the “Magic Capitol of the World” and have a rich history of magic. The Great Blackstone (Harry Blackstone Sr.) made his home in Colon and is buried here.
We host a two week long Magic Festival each summer that draws magicians and fans of magic from around the world.
