What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Short’s Brewing Co. Anniversary, Art Walk, Mother’s Day

In just a few days, we already wrap up the month of April, ushering in a new month of plenty of activity.

Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association is back with a look at What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.

Short’s Brewing Company is about to turn 12, and will be celebrating their anniversary this Saturday, April 30.

They’ll be transforming the streets of Bellaire into a whole block of fun with Short’s brews, Starcut Ciders, live music, scrumptious local foods and thousands of fellow Short’s fans.

In addition to the pub being open, there will be outdoor beverage stations and local food trucks.

Short’s will be giving back to the community as well, with 50 percent of the profits going back to the Village of Bellaire to help with improvements and beautification.

Art will be adorning the walls of downtown Traverse City during the upcoming Downtown Art Walk on Friday, May 6 from 5pm until 9pm!

The event will be promoting the local arts community, and you’re invited to visit and enjoy art, wine, food and music.

Experience art ranging from sculpture and oil paintings, to glass and watercolor, all while shopping at your favorite local shops!

Walking maps for the Art Walk will be available at each participating gallery, as well as at the downtown Traverse City office.

If you’re looking for ideas for how to spoil your mom this Mother’s Day, coming up on Sunday, May 8, there are plenty of great options in the area!

Hotel Walloon on Walloon Lake is offering a special Mother’s Day package that includes a luxurious two-night stay and brunch on Sunday morning.

Chateau Chantal in Traverse City is preparing a special Mother’s Day five-course wine pairing dinner on Saturday evening.

And Castle Farms in Charlevoix will be hosting a Mother’s Day Royal Tea, with a Spa Corner and a Sun Hat contest.
