Drink in their amazing craft during our 2nd Annual Makers Trail Festival

June 8, 2019 | 3:00-9:00 p.m.

IMG 5095We’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. 

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.
