The second annual Great Lakes Surf Festival to be held on Saturday August 17th at Pere Marquette Beach in Muskegon, Michigan promises to utilize one of Michigan’s great natural resources: WAVES.
Imagine an event where people can go to dip their toes in incredible white sand, obtain a beginner board sport lesson, such as learning to surf, SUP, or kayak, enjoy yoga, art, and music and also camp a few steps away from the water? If you are thinking California or Florida then you are wrong. This is what the second annual Great Lakes Surf Festival has in store for thousands of Great Lakes of boardheads, artists, and yogis. The one day event is scheduled to be help on Saturday August 17th at Pere Marquette Beach in Muskegon, Michigan.
While this event promises to be a board rider’s nirvana, one of the most appealing aspects of participating in this festival will be the opportunity to camp directly on the beach, just a few steps from the water. Tent camping, at a specified section of Pere Marquette Beach, will be available for the nights of Friday, August 16th and Saturday August 17th.
Event Co-Founder Joe Bidawid is excited about what’s on slate for this second year; “We are excited to see the Great Lakes Surf Festival grow and to have the support from our sponsors and from the surf and paddleboard industry. We have one of the most beautiful venue locations on the Great Lakes, in Pere Marquette Beach, and we encourage anyone interested in a fun and family friendly beach day to come out and join us.”
