If you’re looking for fun things to do before summer ends, there’s a lot coming up in August around West Michigan!

Courtney Sheffer with West Michigan Tourist Association joined FOX 17 Morning News to tell us more about what’s coming up.

Unity Christian Music Festival – Muskegon

  • Kicking off at the end of this week, the Unity Christian Music Festival is back in Muskegon this summer, and runs from August 11th through August 14th. It takes place outdoors at Heritage Landing, and is celebrating its 20th year with artists including Matthew West, For King and Country, TobyMac, and a full schedule of other artists. Wednesday is free to attend, and tickets for the rest of the festival are available online.

  • The Burning Foot Beer festival is back in Muskegon this year as well, and it’s coming up on Saturday, August 28th. It takes place right at Pere Marquette Beach, and even has “barefoot entry” since the whole festival takes place on the sand! They’ll have over 400 different beers you can sample, as well as two stages with live music, bonfires, and even camping right on site!
