2nd Annual Makers Trail Festival
Meet Southwest Michigan’s makers at Weko Beach!
Sponsored by the Southwestern Michigan Tourist Council
Drink in their amazing craft during our 2nd Annual Makers Trail Festival
JUNE 8, 2019 | 3:00-9:00 P.M.
We’ll be popping corks, tapping kegs and pouring your favorite spirits ’til sunset. Come party with us at Weko Beach – with nothing but gorgeous Lake Michigan to the west – and Southwest Michigan’s premier wine, beer and spirits makers all in one place. This is the perfect chance for you and your friends to try new drinks or stick with your go-to favorites using beverage tickets purchased when you arrive. There will be water, soda and juices for your DD and you, too.
Dance or chill to our music makers at no extra charge. We’ve stacked the lineup with your kind of beach music. Listen by the lake to three bands pump out their playlists all festival long.
- The Newports
- Slim Gypsy Baggage
- Top Secret Band
Favorite food makers will be here, too! In addition to the drink tastings and music entertainment, popular local food vendors will dish up fresh, summer flavors that taste great with your wine, brew and spirit choices. There will be sodas, water and juices for your DD and you, too.
Advance tickets: $10. (ages 10 and up) are on sale now! Gate tickets: $20; children under 10 years, free. Invite your friends and family to join you for a great day at the beach!
Bring cash to the festival. This is a cash-only event, so please bring money to buy your drink tasting tickets ($1 each) and food from our vendors. For your convenience, we’ll have an ATM on site.
Free parking. Free shuttles. That’s right. No charge. Shuttles will run frequently throughout the event, so you can come and go when you want. Parking locations will be just a few miles away from Weko Beach and will be posted closer to the event. There will be no parking available at Weko Beach.
Hotels Participating in Transportation
Plenty of local hotels will have free shuttles to and from the event. Full list will be posted soon.
Come rain or shine! There will be plenty of room for you under the big tents. You’re welcome to bring your own chairs. However, please leave your pets, coolers, drinks and food outside the gates – they’re not allowed on the festival grounds. No smoking is permitted, either.
