Traverse City Events: Paella in the Park!

Traverse City Events: Head over to Traverse City’s Clinch Park on the Lake Michigan shore on August 5th for the second annual Paella in the Park event featuring the seven wineries of Old Mission Peninsula paired with seven regional chefs preparing Spanish paellas on-site. Each winery will host a station featuring three 36" pans in which chefs cook paella using featured wines from that vintner and fresh local ingredients.

Featured performers Cherry Poppin’ Daddies will get the crowd swinging and swaying at with their lively and energetic neo-swing sound at this fabulous Traverse City event. Famous for their smash-hit song "Zoot Suit Riot" the band will play as the sun sets over Traverse City’s beautiful West Bay on Lake Michigan.
