2nd Annual Hops and Props
September 12th - 14th, 2014
The Manistee Mainstreet DDA
Front and center is the All-Michigan craft beer tasting, this year featuring twelve (12) breweries and nearly 40 varieties of beer, plus hard cider and wine. Scroll down for a list of our featured breweries.
Also within the event tent will be live musical entertainment all day long (schedule below), tasty food from local vendors, great friends and lively conversation beside the Manistee River Channel.
Speaking of water, don’t miss the “Props” part of the event: the Century Boat Club’s “Thoroughbred Round-Up” classic boat show. Manistee has a very rich maritime history which is further emphasized by being the home of Century Boat’s manufacturing facility during the 20th century! For these boats to “come home” to Manistee surely is a treat.
Rounding out the event will be the “Arts Alive” juried art show, presented by the Manistee Art Institute. Stroll River Street and take in some breathtaking artwork amidst our historic streetscape.
While you’re here, be sure to stop in to our many unique downtown shops and restaurants, stroll the riverwalk, and more. Make a weekend of it!
You’ll find it all on River Street in Downtown Manistee – Event tent located at the fountain plaza adjacent to the Manistee Municipal Marina.
