After the party at the dock, join us for a special Mac Race Dinner at The Circle M.  Located in an old stone Rectory, the Circle M is an island favorite renowned for its great food and atmosphere. Free transportation will be provided to the Circle M and entertainment will be from The Bootstrap Boys. Also performing at the Beaver Island Music Festival, The Bootstrap Boys have developed a unique sound that their original tunes take their cues from that particular mix of country and gospel found in the small churches of rural Michigan, spiced with the redneck flavor of the small town honk tonks of the Midwest.

After dinner, the party continues with a pub crawl to Beaver Island’s Irish pubs: Donegal Danny’s, the Shamrock, the Beachcomber, the new Whiskey Point Brewing Company and finishing up at the Lodge. Services are available for transportation or grab a room. Plan your visit at https://beaverisland.org

New this year is the Beaver Island Water Trail.  Find more information about this marked route around the island at beaverislandwatertrail.org.

Beaver Island is a great launching pad for the delivery home. If it’s blowing out of the southwest, you can head over to the UP/Wisconsin lee shore or, make the better choice and enjoy waiting it out on America’s Emerald Isle and enjoy great bands in the middle of the woods at The Beaver Island Music Fest.

If you plan to stay over to enjoy beauty of the Island, you can book a slip at the Beaver Island Municipal Marina in the Paradise Bay Harbor online, https://www.midnrreservations.com/ or call 1-231-448-2252.
