Aug. 31st 2019


The festival will highlight the talented local bands that call northwestern Michigan home, from students who are just starting their music careers to the homestyle jamboree bands of music lovers. The centerpiece stage will be supported by a collection of other homegrown favorites, like local food trucks and a tasting sponsored by regional breweries. We believe that local acts deserve a spot in the limelight and that the talent we have here at home can anchor an annual community event and encourage the growth of our unique music scene.
