Welcome Summer!

Summer is here and so is....
All the fun things to do in Downtown Kalamazoo!

 

MIXER ON THE MALL, PRESENTED BY MAPLE HILL AUTO GROUP

It officially started June 18 and the line-up promises to be amazing.  But, the new thing about Mixer is that we have incorporated the concept of street festivals and five times a year, Mixer will move to the south Kalamazoo Mall.  If  you grew up in Kalamazoo, this is a little hard to believe, but this new concept will allow attendees to spread out, enjoy the music, have adult beverages and find a table to sit at, and even do a little window shopping.  And, then if you want to visit a store, the drink needs to be finished before you leave the event area and visit the store.  It's super easy, totally friendly, and downtown friendly.

TASTE OF PORTAGE
PLACEMAKING, LOVING WHERE YOU LIVE, AND BELIEVING IN THE POWER OF COMMUNITY. 

We hear it all the time....I love Portage.  I am proud to live and work in Portage.  And,  you should be.  There are many cool things that are so distinctly "Portage."  On July 19 the City of Portage will open their "gates" to anyone who loves to eat, drink great beer, and listen to music.  The Portage Athletic Foundation has taken the risk, they accepted the challenge offered by the City of Portage - "Please keep our signature festival live."  And the members of the Athletic Foundation that supports the Portage Public School athletic programs are running the event, with the help of The Event Company.

The event has been hosted for years and it will continue to offer the same great things, we just took the opportunity to expand it and host a little more emphasis on the beer in Portage.  With Latitude 42's partnership, there will be an afternoon Beer Expo and they will unveil the Taste of Portage Beer Flavor. With samples, you can taste it and love a little brew.
