Short’s Fest 2024

Short’s Fest 2024

Summer doesn’t start until we say so—throw on your summer shorts, grab your camp chair, and join us for the perfect summer evening (rain or shine!) on the lawn by Grand Traverse East Bay.

We’ll be pouring shloads of Short’s Brews and Starcut Ciders and will have a bevvy of N/A bevvies at your command. You can stuff your face with tacos, BBQ, coney dogs (and more) on site if you need something to satiate (other than our luxurious liquids). Release your wiggles with live music from DaVeonce & The Funk Gang, Kanin Wren’s “Taylor Swift Experience” and Elizabeth Reed.

Early Bird tickets are available now until May 31 for $30, ticket prices go up after that. Your ticket will include a commemorative Short’s Fest glass and 2 fills. Tokens for refills are $5 each.

Must be 21 with a valid photo ID to enter. For more details and to get your tickets, click HERE.

Attendees can expect one-of-a-kind mac and cheese samples, craft beers, live music, and fun activities. Each attendee will receive “all-inclusive” style tickets with food samples, beer/cider samples, a souvenir cup, and more. This is an event for all ages.​​
