The sun is out, the weather is warm, and the kids are just about out of school and ready for fun. Summer is here and the DTE Foundation is supporting an exciting seasonal slate of free community events throughout the summer across the Great Lakes State.

Whether it’s delicious food, popular music, or good ole fashioned fun, you’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for in dozens of communities statewide.

Plan your weekend around Taste of Muskegon on June 14 – 15 to experience the best Muskegon has to offer. Try local restaurants and craft brews, while listening to live music and entertainment. And the kids are welcomed too! Take them to the Kids’ Zone for arts and crafts, bounce houses and more.

Visit the 63rd annual Baldwin Troutarama on July 17 – 20 to enjoy a children’s fishing derby, softball tournament, live music, carnival rides, grand parade featuring the famous Scottville Clown Band and a 5K race. Whether you’re there for a day or the whole weekend, there’s something fun for everyone!

What is the Grand Rapids Maker Faire? It’s a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, it’s a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects. Go get a glimpse the future on Aug. 24 – 25 and get inspired!

Find your local festival or hit the road to enjoy the best of Michigan’s food, music and fun!
