Summer is in full swing here in northern Michigan and there’s plenty going on to keep you and the entire family busy.
Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association has the details in this week’s What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.
Evening on River Street in Elk Rapids
If you’re looking for some family-friendly entertainment, you can head to downtown Elk Rapids on Wednesday nights to enjoy their “Evening on River Street” series. It’s a great chance to head downtown, listen to live music, visit with friends, and pop into your favorite restaurant or shop. You can catch Evenings on River Street Wednesdays from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. now through August 18.
Boyne Valley Vineyards
Boyne Valley Vineyards in Petoskey is another great location to visit for live, outdoor music! You’ll find live music every Friday and Saturday all summer long, where you can enjoy a glass of wine on the patio or lawn as you take in the views, catch up with friends, and enjoy the live music. You can view Boyne Valley Vineyards’ full music lineup online to plan your visit.
Great Lakes Center for the Arts
And the Great Lakes Center for the Arts in Petoskey has a full lineup of great entertainment in store for you, with everything from comedy to dance to Blues. Visit this Saturday for jazz vocalist Kurt Elling, whose performance will be accompanied by a Mammoth Distilling Takeover on the Terrace, serving craft Northern Michigan cocktails for you to enjoy on the terrace or while enjoying the show in the theatre. You can find tickets and the full schedule on the Great Lakes Center for the Arts website.
