15th Annual Art, Beer, and Wine Festival

15th Annual Art, Beer, and Wine Festival at Ella Sharp Museum

Presented by County National Bank

June 8, 2019 from 1:00 – 7:00 pm

Join more than 35 Michigan based breweries, wineries, beverage distilleries, specialty beverage vendors, over 15 food vendors, 50-plus artists and thousands of guests at the Art, Beer & Wine Festival, a Saturday celebration that keeps getting more and more popular. This summer event outdoes itself every year, as a rising number of festivalgoers enjoy live music and artist booths on Ella Sharp Museum’s manicured grounds, and within the courtyard of its historic Hillside Farm Lane. This event will take place Saturday, June 8th from 1:00 - 7:00 PM presented by County National Bank.

The Art, Beer & Wine Festival provides a chance for local artists, musicians and small businesses to connect with the people of Jackson and beyond. With or without craft brew in hand, you’ll enjoy seeing the unique creativity and talent of artists located right here in the Jackson area. This year, we have 50%+ with Jackson roots.

This event is an important fundraiser for the museum and part of the museum’s overall funding mix, which also includes membership dues, contributions, and facility rental fees. This is truly a community festival, as more than 320 volunteers devoted the day to helping the museum’s staff manage the event.

“We are pleased and proud to host this landmark festival and to share Jackson with visitors from near and far,” explained Diane Gutenkauf, Executive Director of Ella Sharp Museum. “People look forward to it all year, and visitors tell us that they even factor it into their vacation planning and family reunions!” In addition to local residents the festival draws visitors from across the country and Canada. Last year, guests came from as far away as Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, and Texas.
