What’s Going On In Northern Michigan: Snowmobile Festival, BrrrewFest, Torchlight Snowshoe Outing

Snowmobiling, Michigan craft beer and snowshoeing by torch light.

No matter how cold it gets, there are always plenty of ways to have fun in our region.

Courtney Sheffer of the West Michigan Tourist Association has a look at What’s Going On In Northern Michigan.

Pack your snowmobile and head to Gaylord on January 29th and 30th for the Michigan Snowmobile Festival!

The festival is two days of celebrating snowmobiling and all things winter. Participate in the Fun Run on Saturday morning, followed by an antique and vintage sled parade.

Young visitors will enjoy the kids’ fun area downtown, and you won’t want to miss the Snowmo Rodeo on Saturday afternoon.

Gaylord sits in the middle of a snowmobile network that runs more than 500 miles across eight counties, with more than a dozen accommodations where you can ride right from your door to the trails, so it’s the perfect location for a winter getaway.

Bundle up and head outside for the Pure Ludington BrrrewFest on Saturday, January 30th in downtown Ludington. More than 30 brewers from throughout Michigan will be showcasing their best, including Boatyard Brewing, Stormcloud Brewing, and Uncle John’s Hard Cider.

Tickets are available now, and include drink tokens and a commemorative tasting glass.

Spend the weekend in Ludington and enjoy Michigan craft beer, good food and live music!

Experience the beauty of the wilderness as you snowshoe by torchlight at Camp Daggett in Petoskey on Saturday, January 30, and again on February 27.

They have snowshoes available for all ages, and you’ll get to trek through the woods, lit only by torch lights along the way.

After your trek, come in from the cold for a cup of hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies while you warm up by the crackling fire in the camp’s beautiful main lodge.

This event has free admission, and is a great chance to learn about everything that Camp Daggett offers for children and the community throughout the year.
