The Beaver Island Music Festival was started in 2003 because a few people wanted to hear "music in the woods." All these years later, the notes are still playing on this 13-mile long island located in the northern waters of Lake Michigan.
The annual Festival will kick off on July 19 and run for three days with great music and appreciation for art and nature. According to the festival founders, Beaver Island Music Festival "promotes the variety and tradition of all music and art."
Aldea Coffee will be at the Festival this year for the first time, serving cold brew, lemonade, and other assorted coffee drinks. The photo above shows Madi at our Muskegon facility making lemonade for the event.
"No man is an island," said Aldea Coffee co-founder Andrew Boyd, "and no man or woman should be without great coffee even if he finds himself on an island."
More than twenty-four acts are slated to take the stage on Beaver Island, which lies 33 miles west of Charlevoix. The lineup includes Jesse Ray & The Carolina Catfish, a Grand Rapids based rock & roll blues band that's performed at The Armory in Grand Haven on numerous occasions.
Tickets and information about the event can be found at the Beaver Island Music Festival Website.
