The Northport Wine and Craft Beer Festival Was a Great Success.
2016 was our largest festival ever!
Our 2016 festival was a super success thanks to a great line up of wineries and breweries, terrific restaurants and Big Boss Blues from Kalamazoo who performed spectacularly all afternoon!
This event would not be possible without our great sponsors: Dick and Sherry Koenig, Northport Creek Golf Course, East Traverse Catholic Federal Credit Union, Due North Marketing Communications, Kal Excavating, TC Office Express, Cherryland Electric Cooperative, Horizon Financial, Ahgosatown Marina and RV Park and Northport Pottery.
It also would not be possible without the many volunteers who help set up and take down, haul tables and chairs, pour wine, check visitors in and all the hundreds of things that have to be done to make a successful event. We so appreciate the area organizations who let us use equipment for the day. Thanks to Leelanau Christian Neighbors for the use of their truck, to Northport Public Schools, Northport Lions Club and the Northport Youth Sailing School for letting us borrow tables and chairs and to Pure Water Works for supplying water bubblers! Our media sponsor, WTCM helped us get the message out which helped draw more people to the festival this year!
