What’s Happening In Northern Michigan: Fun Winter Events for Everyone

The West Michigan Tourism Association is once again bringing us the latest in fun winter events.

There’s activities for adrenaline chases, wine lovers and all you ski fanatics.

Gaylord CVB - Michigan Snowmobile Festival

The Michigan Snowmobile Festival is headed to Gaylord Friday and Saturday.

This free fun run will take you through great terrain in Northern Michigan. Each participant registers either online or in person and receives a map full of highlighted stops. Bring the slips you receive at registration to each stop to be entered to win cash drawings.

Participants can also create their own route, starting when they’d like, or join the guided ride beginning on Saturday at 10:30am at the Gaylord Tourism Bureau office.

And don’t miss the afterparty at the Eagles Hall for food, a cash bar, and live music.

Bonobo Winery - February Winter Events

Traverse City’s Bonobo Winery has some great events taking place this month, starting with their Winter Dinner Series.

You’ll enjoy a multi-course dinner, paired with delicious Bonobo wines, and the menus are different each week, making for unique experiences all month long. These dinners are taking place on Fridays in the month of February, and you’ll want to be sure to reserve your space.

You’ll also want to check out their snowshoe and cross-country ski path through their vineyard for a great way to get outdoors this winter. Visit their website for information on packages and equipment rentals.
