Attend the 2016 Lansing JazzFest!

July 15th, 2016 by Corey A. Edwards

Lansing JazzFest 2016The 2016 Lansing JazzFest is almost here with great music, riverboat tours, food, drinks, and more. Best of all? Admission is free! August 5th and 6th, 2016.

Lansing’s popular JazzFest is a fabulous, two-day music festival on 3 stages, performed by top-tier jazz artists from around the area and the country. Lansing JazzFest is unique in that musicians are asked to play at least one original composition. This means you’ll be the first to hear what may be the standards of the future! It is this freshness that makes Lansing JazzFest so very exciting.

Beyond the music, Lansing JazzFest also includes River Boat Tours from Lansing Metro Marinas. These half-hour tours of the Grand River will be available on Friday, 5pm to 8 pm, $3 per person. You can also get to the JazzFest via water, if you wish. Lansing Metro Marinas will be offering River Boat Taxi services on Saturday, from 1pm to 10 pm from the Lansing City Market to Burchard Park for only $1. What fun!

Lansing’s 2011 Festival of the Sun

June 21st, 2011 by insideout

Lansing’s 12th Annual Festival of the Sun takes place Saturday, June 25, 2011, between 2 and 11 p.m. Guests of our Lansing Michigan Bed and Breakfast always rave about this festival, and we are frequently booked months in advance. It is, simply put, a feast for the soul. Why? Because nothing celebrates the solstice like good food, good wine, and good music.

Festival goers need bring only their appetite – everything else is provided.

Featured wines this year come from Michigan, California, Argentina and beyond. They’ll be paired with food ranging from delicate stuffed grape leaves to “trailer park’d” burgers and bratwursts. New this year at the Festival of the Sun is the Pairing Tent, where festival-goers may enjoy an authentic wine tasting experience: three wines will be served with a sample sized three-course meal. Attend and you’ll have the menu for your next dinner party.

It wouldn’t be a festival without live music. Look forward to music by the Elevator Conspiracy, the Tree Hut Kings, Summer of Sol, and more. Wisaal, Tania Hayward, and Sunny Side Up will play the acoustic stage, along with several others. Music should accompany all of your tastings, be they food, drink, or both.

Sound fun? It always is. If you can’t make it this year, be sure to put it on your calendar next year. When you do, be sure to book a room at our Lansing Bed and Breakfast.

Festival of the Sun is June 25, 2011.
