Muskegon Summer Wine Up

The “Unofficial” Start of Summer


The first “official” day of summer may be June 22nd, but in West Michigan the start of summer really comes after school ends. Then you know a new routine will begin and vacation is ready to begin.

The “Muskegon Summer Wine Up” is a brand new festival for adults to celebrate the real start of summer and created and promoted by Cumulus – Radio Muskegon.

Our plan is to create the inaugural “Muskegon Summer Wine Down” in beautiful Hackley Park. It will be a get together, a celebration, a day of music and fun and a learning opportunity for wine novices and pros alike to try and taste the different varieties of wines created in Michigan, nationally and internationally.

  • WHERE: Hackley Park in Downtown Muskegon
  • WHEN: Saturday, June 8th, 2019 from 2 pm until 8 pm
