Best time to go to Michigan

Burning Foot Beer Festival 2023

With the barefoot entry and camping on the beach, this beer fest is definitely not an ordinary one

Who wouldn't like to farewell summer at the Lake Michigan waterfront with gallons of craft beer from the Great Lakes' breweries? The Burning Foot Beer Festival (BFBF) has it all and even more. The annual party takes place in a scenic Pere Marquette Park, Muskegon, MI, typically on the last Saturday in August. So you've got a perfect occasion to end summer enjoying beers from 70+ local breweries, live music, arts, evening bonfires, and camping on the beach. In addition to food vendors on-site, beer munchies can hike to Muskegon and dine in one of the city's prime restaurants too.

As for your stay, camping is a great choice, which allows you to fully relish the natural beauty of Lake Michigan and the sand dunes surrounding the venue. The area has two campgrounds, namely Tent Campground, nestled next to the event's grounds, and Channel Park–RV at Margaret Elliot Drake Park. If you're not a camping person and would prefer comfort, consider the nearest accommodations available for rent—the options are presented on the map below.

Lastly, if you're curious about the Lakeshore Brewers Guild or want details on the music lineup, confirmed food vendors, and so on, stay tuned on the event's official website and Facebook. You'll find the links in the External Resources below.
