Burning Foot Beer Festival 2017

Burning Foot Beer Festival 2017

More Bands, More Beer, More Burn

Burning Foot Beer Festival MuskegonMuskegon, MI– Muskegon’s Pere Marquette Beach will ignite on August 26, 2017, for the 3​ rd Annual​ Burning Foot Beer Festival​. Serving as Michigan’s only barefoot beer festival on the sand, festival goers can enjoy some of the finest craft beer found in the Great Lakes region, revel in local art and food, groove to local and national music acts, and take in the beautiful shoreline of Lake Michigan.

Burning Foot Beer Festival is turning up the heat in 2017 with 65 craft breweries from Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin, and five bands with two national acts— Less Than Jake, Badfish – A Tribute to Sublime, Tropidelic, South Paw and Melophobix. Intent on lighting up all the senses, more local art will be exhibited this year, and Burning Foot Beer Festival’s own Chef Scott will be serving up a new beach menu (with a beer twist). Exclusive to Burning Foot Beer Festival and even bigger this year, is the one-day camping experience on the lakeshore, with two RV campgrounds and expanded tent camping space. Also new this year is the addition of a VIP tent complete with patio seating, fire pits, VIP parking, and early entry into the festival.

Although Burning Foot is first and foremost a celebration of local craft beer, the festival also highlights the lakeshore’s stunning natural beauty (and hot summer sand)! Bordered by sand dunes to the east and Lake Michigan to the west, Pere Marquette Park provides world-class natural surroundings from every vantage point.

The Lakeshore Brewers Guild will be hosting a pre-release ticket party June 24, 2017, at the Downtown Muskegon Beach Volleyball courts on the corner of 2nd & Western from 12:00 to 5:00 pm. This free event includes food, music, and craft beer on-site to help kick off the sale of all tickets (including VIP, camping) before the online sale begins. Patrons will be able to kick back, enjoy some tunes, have a craft beer, and sink their feet in the sand. Tickets are $50 ($60 on day of festival) and will be available for purchase online beginning on Saturday, June 24 at 5:01 pm. VIP tickets are $125 (Limit 200). Designated Driver tickets are $20. Tickets for camping will also be available online. Camping is $50 per tent, and RV is $100 per location.

Check out the list of brewers, music acts and more at www.burningfoot.beer


The Lakeshore Brewers Guild promotes the local craft beer industry and the lakeshore’s natural beauty. As a supplement to the Michigan Brewers Guild, the Lakeshore Brewers Guild is focused on counties that touch Lake Michigan. States included are Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, and Wisconsin. Throughout these counties, the guild is working with its members to build the “Lakeshore Ale Trail,” a region rich in craft breweries, natural beauty, and the economic benefits that flow from successful locally-owned and oriented businesses. Joint advertising and cooperative support allows guild members to grow while also establishing the region as a “beer tourism” hotspot. Through these collaborative efforts, the Lakeshore Brewers Guild is becoming a driving force in supporting both its members and local economies. Learn more at https://www.lakeshoreguild.beer/

Blow Up: Inflatable Contemporary Art

Blow Up: Inflatable Contemporary Art – Opening Reception

Celebrate the opening of Blow Up: Inflatable Contemporary Art exhibition featuring giant blow-ups, including bunnies, Buddha, Trans Am, elephant, and more! Refreshments and balloon animals by “The Balloon Guy” Jim Perry will be provided. Free and open to the public.

This exhibition features artists who use air as a sculptural medium. While inflatable objects are typically associated with advertising, children’s entertainment or holiday decorations, the format has been appropriated by a diverse group of artists to explore complex subjects such as identity, materialism, and war. Playing with scale, color, and the inherent light-heartedness of balloons, the selected artists produce a wide variety of sculptural forms from Lewis deSoto’s Sleeping Buddha to Claire Ashley’s colorful abstract shapes. This traveling exhibition includes major works by Claire Ashley (Chicago), Lewis deSoto (Napa), Patrick Flibotte (New York), Billie Grace Lynn (Miami), Guy Overfelt (San Francisco), Momoyo Torimitsu (Tokyo), and Christo and Jean-Claude.

Opening Celebration
The Muskegon Museum of Art
296 W Webster Ave, Muskegon, MI 49440
When: Thursday at 5:30 PM – 8 PM

The exhibit will be on display at the Muskegon Museum of Art from February 23rd to April 23rd.

Inflatable structures connote fun and whimsy, and challenge our everyday, feet-on-the-ground perspective. Blow Up: Inflatable Contemporary Art explores the imaginative ways that artists use air as a tool for creating large-scale sculpture and includes imagery that is figurative, conceptual, and abstract. Accessible, yet rich with meaning, these pieces use perception of space and unexpected materials to open a dialogue about pop culture and social norms.

Visitors to the gallery will encounter a life-size inflatable Trans Am, 14 foot tall pink bunnies, and a 25 foot long reclining Buddha-inspired figure, to name just a few of the dynamic and wildly engaging inflatable sculptures installed in the gallery.

RSVP to the Facebook event at https://www.facebook.com/events/100135560509695/

Mona Shores Singing Christmas Tree

Mona Shores Singing Christmas Tree

Mona Shores Singing Christmas Tree2016 marks the thirty-second anniversary of the Mona Shores Singing Christmas Tree. The response each year from the larger West Michigan community continues to be overwhelming.

The tree holds 240 of the 275 singers that are in the Mona Shores High School Choir (the remainder sing from a position below the Tree). The choir is joined by our 50 member Mona Shores High School Orchestra.

Over 5,000 audience members enjoy the Tree every year. Many say “It’s the way we kick off our holiday season!” One of the most special moments in the production starts before the students are even in the Tree. Imagine being surrounded by 275 singers, singing a cappella, in a candlelight processional in the historic and wonderfully acoustic Frauenthal Center.

A free, special dress rehearsal show is held on the Wednesday before the production opens to the public. Members of the community with special needs, the elderly and other people who might not otherwise be able to afford the production are invited to attend at no cost. Meijer sponsors this event each year.

The person at the top of the Tree is known as “The Tree Angel” and is always a high school senior, selected by the director. This student is always one who  accurately represents the hard working choir students, and exemplifies the spirit of the Mona Shores Choir.

The tree is 67 feet in height from the base of the decorations to the top of the star. The tree is put up by parent volunteers from the choir association. Over 850 pieces of unistrut steel form the superstructure which is manually assembled by volunteer crews who begin to build the giant “erector set” on Sunday morning of “Tree Week.”

Over 1,500 linear feet of electrical wiring runs throughout the tree to more than 25,000 colored lights, and over 5,000 linear feet of special greenery imported from Germany is “fluffed” and put on the tree prior to the decorations.

More than 200 volunteers started working on this year’s production in early October. And many worked around the clock from Sunday morning through Monday evening to prepare for technical rehearsals and get the tree presentable for its annual performance.

The first Singing Christmas Tree ever created happened 50 years ago in Southern California. It was 16 feet high and held 25 singers. Many communities across the world have Singing Christmas Trees, but none are as tall as this one.

The Mona Shores Singing Christmas Tree is presented in the beautiful and historic Frauenthal Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Muskegon, Michigan. For Ticket Information, click here.
