Thank You!

We would like to thank everyone who joined us on August 12, 2017 in Downtown Manistee as we showcased local Michigan Wines and more! Keep an eye out for updates on 2018’s Grapes on the River!

Hosted by the Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce Grapes on the River is an event that pairs local cuisine and Michigan wine. This family friendly event hosts live entertainment, while relaxing in the park at the Manistee Municipal Marina overlooking the Manistee River in the heart of Downtown Manistee.

This year we teamed up with other area events to expand this wine tasting event into a community wide – full day event.  The Grapes on the River committee joined forces with Downtown Manistee merchants to coordinate the Saturday to their annual Sidewalk Sales event, where streets are lined with pop-ups, merchandise and much more!

In addition, we are also teamed up with the Catamaran Racing Association of Michigan who will be racing just off the shores of Manistee on Lake Michigan on Saturday and Sunday, which you can view from First Street Beach! The races started at 11 am on Saturday August 12th, and at 10:30 am and no later than 1 pm on Sunday August 13th. You can check out the photos of their adventure in Manistee here!

Thank You to our 2017 Vendors!
