This free two-day event, hosted by Colony Marine on Lake St. Clair is jam packed with family fun for those of all ages. It is a celebration of the boating lifestyle held by many Michiganders.

Five local bands and one national act will be set up on the beachfront of Belle Maer Marina, just off Belvidere Bay, north of the mouth of the Clinton River and Directly east of the Selfridge airfield. Activities and concerts will run from 12:30-7:00 p.m. both days
Alternative hip-hop has never been better, that is, since the reunion of Jurassic 5. Following their 2007 break-up, it was a quiet six years for Jurassic fans, until the boys reunited for last year’s Coachella festival. After playing a few shows together, Jurassic 5 announced their “Word of Mouth Reunion Tour” earlier this year, complete with a Royal Oak pit stop. If their new song “The Way We Do It” is any indication of what’s to come for the group, fans have a lot to look forward to. In the music video, the boys, sounding better than ever, go stomping through Colorado’s infamous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the dead of winter. Wrapped up from head to toe, they throw down lines like they were never on hiatus, showcasing their ceaseless talent.
The Hard Lessons will be hitting the stage at Magic Bag this Saturday in celebration of their newly released album Arms Forrest. For these Detroit natives the release of Arms Forrest brings about a change for the band with songs ranging from raw-guitar to slinky-dance-groove tracks. All-in-all, their transformation proves for a great show full of heart and relatable lyrics that are sure to tug at the heart strings of any Detroiter.

This PG rated film is full of hilarity and romance from beginning to end and will spice up any average summer night. Don’t forget to hit the concession stand, which prices are distinctly low and the popcorn is always delicious.
You can bring your best friend but, in this case, the ‘BFF’ does not stand for best friend forever. No, this is the one and only Best Fest Forever Fest! It’s a daylong festival celebrating Michigan’s diverse community of musicians and artists. Hoping to build a stronger, more balanced scene in Detroit (and also in the galaxy!) the lineup prioritizes women, POC, and LGBTQ performers. Celebrate progress with delicious food, good friends, a fun clothes swap, and tunes from several DJs and bands. The fun runs from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m.
