This year’s Suds on the Shore Craft Beer and Wine Festival will be held on Saturday, August 19, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Rotary Park (formerly known as Ludington City Park).

You must be 21 years of age or older to enter the festival and present a valid ID at the gate.  Due to the nature of this event, we do not allow anyone under the age of 21 on the grounds.

The cost of a ticket is $25.00 in advance and $30.00 at the gate, which includes entry into the festival, eight tokens, and a souvenir glass.  Tickets can be purchased on-line at

Additional tokens can be purchased at the festival.  Each token is worth one 4-ounce sample of beer/cider or a 2-ounce sample of wine/mead.

We also have the option for individuals to purchase a designated driver ticket for $5.00, which includes a free bottle of water.  These tickets can be purchased at the gate.

Last year, there were 60 craft beer, cider, wine and mead vendors and over 2,000 people in attendance. United Way of Mason County is the beneficiary of the proceeds.
