Welcome to Grand Rapids Bourbon Fest

***This pains us to do but we have to make the best decision of a bad situation. We want to make sure that people's health isn't at risk and we couldn't do that in clear conscience by moving forward with the festival. We have decided to reschedule the festival for Saturday, July 11th at Studio D2D. All of your tickets will be valid for Saturday, July 11th and if July 11th doesn't work we are offering a comped ticket to 2021 GR Bourbon Fest.***

The inaugural Grand Rapids Bourbon Fest is on Saturday, July 11th. There are two sessions with Session One from 4pm to 7pm and Session Two from 8pm to 11pm

GR Bourbon Fest is an indoor bourbon festival hosted in the loft space at Studio D2D Event Center (401 Hall St SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503).

Proceeds Benefit Friends of The River

Friends Of The River

The Friends of the River is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit that works to improve water quality, access, and awareness on the Rivers in Michigan. We implement these goals in a number of ways. A few examples would be by getting our hands dirty and hosting regular river clean ups. Or when we work with communities to help provide docking for recreational boats of all sizes from kayaks to larger power boats. We also host and attend events regarding the rivers in order to help keep communities aware of just how important our rivers and water resources are.
