Traverse City Winter Microbrew & Music Festival: Porterhouse Productions is pleased to announce that the 2012 Third Annual Traverse City Winter Microbrew & Music Festival will be held at The Village at Grand Traverse Commons on February 11, 2012. In light of recent scheduling conflicts with the Traverse City Comedy Arts Festival, Porterhouse has determined the best compromise for all involved parties is to relocate the festival outside of downtown Traverse City. It's Porterhouse's sincere hope that this will allow the Comedy Festival to return in 2013, and that both organizations will enjoy successful, cooperative events in the future.
Porterhouse would also like to thank Mayor Michael Estes, the City of Traverse City and the Minervini Group for working together this week to help make the venue change possible, particularly as this and other venue alternatives were previously unavailable up until now. The Minervini Group has been a committed partner of the summer incarnation of the festival, which has been held at the Village for the past three years, and the Microbrew & Music Festival looks forward to partnering with them again on the winter event. As with past festivals, the weekend will be a celebration of the craft microbrews, food, music, art and culture that make our region unique, as well as the natural beauty of the Village and the many wonderful merchants and residents who reside there. Porterhouse thanks the Traverse City community for its ongoing feedback and support, and looks forward to celebrating with the community this February!
