  • Beer Fest

    09/12/2015

    The U.P. Fall Beer Festival is a favorite event for anyone who loves craft beer: the festival features more than 100 different Michigan-crafted beers. Local restaurants provide the nibbles, and there’s live entertainment to accompany the imbibing. Tickets are less expensive if purchased online (and more certain, as the event sells out) and include 15 drink tokens, each redeemable for a three-ounce sample of beer. Designated driver tickets are really inexpensive but those patrons aren’t allowed to sample the hops. Last tip? Get a babysitter; this is strictly a 21-and-over event.

  • Blues Fest

    09/01/2017

    Labor Day brings the crowd-pleasing Blues Fest, sponsored by the Marquette Area Blues Society, back to the people. This event offers live blues music, free workshops, food, vendors and more. One of the most popular blues festivals in the Midwest, it draws music lovers from all over. You can get discounted tickets online before you go, and lodging packages are available on the web site.

  • Beer Fest

    09/09/2017

    The U.P. Fall Beer Festival is a favorite event for anyone who loves craft beer: the festival features more than 100 different Michigan-crafted beers. Local restaurants provide the nibbles, and there’s live entertainment to accompany the imbibing. Tickets are less expensive if purchased online (and more certain, as the event sells out) and include 15 drink tokens, each redeemable for a three-ounce sample of beer. Designated driver tickets are really inexpensive but those patrons aren’t allowed to sample the hops. Last tip? Get a babysitter; this is strictly a 21-and-over event.
