With spring getting started and summer right around the corner, we at The Michigan Outfitter want to make sure you always know about the best up and coming events happening around the mitten. Getting outside, or involved with your local community is one of the best ways to see all that Michigan has to offer. And, honestly, it beats binge-watching t.v. yet another weekend in a row, right?
This week's event spotlight is the 4th annual Beerfest at the Ballpark. The Beerfest is going to be on April 29 in downtown Lansing, Michigan, from 3-8 PM. This event is especially cool because it's hosted at the Cooley Law School Stadium, home of the Lansing Lugnuts. Plus, the event hosts pledge to put on the event come rain or shine. So, pack your poncho and umbrella if the forecast is rainy!
There will be over 60 Michigan breweries at the beerfest this year. Additionally, there will be several cideries and distilleries from Michigan, for those of you who aren't huge beer fans or just want to mix it up.
Tickets this year are $30 in advance and $35 at the gate. For VIP tickets, it's $40. Beerfest at the Ballpark also offers designated driver tickets for $15. Each regular ticket includes 10 tasting tickets good for a 3 oz pour/ticket. Additional tasting tickets can be bought for $5 each.
While you're there enjoying some of Michigan's delicious craft brews, you can also enjoy some delicious food and awesome music! Beerfest at the Ballpark has a wide variety of local food fare available for purchase at the festival. And, of course, they allow traditional beerfest pretzel necklaces in to the stadium should you choose to make and wear one.
Citizen Zero, a Detroit-local band, will be headlining the event, and before they go on the Lansing Vaudeville Spectacle will be performing, followed by Delilah Dewylde. On the acoustic stage, you'll be treated to the likes of Mark Warner, Rachel Curtis, and Shelby and Jake.
So, if you've got nothing planned for April 29th, consider heading to Lansing for this fun event! Live music, good food, and great beer - you really can't go wrong.
