Welcome to Grand Rapids Bourbon Fest

The 2nd Annual Grand Rapids Bourbon Fest is on Saturday, March 5th 2022. There are two sessions with Session One from 4pm to 7pm and Session Two from 8pm to 11pm. GR Bourbon Fest is an inside bourbon festival hosted in the loft space at Studio D2D Event Center (401 Hall St SW, Grand Rapids, MI 49503).

This festival will feature 100+ whiskeys, 30+ store picks & high-end bottle section. The majority of the list is bourbon but there will be a few non-bourbon options such as Rye whiskey, Tennessee whiskey and Japanese whiskey. In addition to the great whiskey selection, we will have a food truck, live music, vendors and more!

PROCEEDS BENEFIT 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.
