Traverse City Summer Microbrew and Music Festival – August 26 – 27, 2016

We’re excited to celebrate with you!

We invite you to experience an evening of savory, thirst-quenching craft brews, the music of accomplished performers – local and national, and appetizing eats from local food vendors. Since the summer of 2009 we have celebrated and highlighted the craft brew culture and musicians of Michigan along with thousands of brew and live music devotees.

The Microbrew & Music Festival supports hundreds of community-based artists, small businesses, vendors, farmers, local food providers, arts and entertainment companies, hotels and motels, and others throughout Michigan. This commitment only strengthens our purpose to enrich each local economy.

We invite you to join us at each and every Microbrew & Music Festival – which serve to unify communities brought together by delicious flavors of craft brews, delectable food, soulful music, and loads of fun. These events are proof that we can support one another and support the greater good, all while having a fantastic time.
