Join us August 12, 2017 in Downtown Manistee as we showcase local Michigan Wines and more!

Event Time: 4pm-8pm

Hosted by the Manistee Area Chamber of Commerce Grapes on the River is an event that pairs local cuisine and Michigan wine. This 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 plan to team up with other area events to expand this wine tasting event into a community wide – full day event.  The Grapes on the River group have teamed up 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 teaming up with a sailing group that will be bringing you a complete day of sailing races just off the shores of Manistee on Lake Michigan.  Check back soon for complete event details.
