A favorite festival among Jackson residents had to be cancelled last summer due to COVID-19 restrictions but they are planning to press on for Summer 2021.

I had the pleasure of going to the 2019 festival at Jackson's Ella Sharp Park and it was one of the highlights of my summer.

Not only is there tons of different beers to try but, as the name suggests, there are plenty of wineries in attendance for non-beer drinkers as well as craft tents, vendors and beautiful art to look at.

All in all there is something for everyone there and it truly is an incredible event.

Last year, 2020, the event was rescheduled and later cancelled meaning there is going to be a lot of thirsty folks flocking to the event this year!

According to MLive the 16th annual summertime favorite event will take place Saturday, August 7th though limited tickets are going to be available.

While organizers did say this year's event will carry on, they are still going to match any state COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions that may be in place at the time.

The year I was able to attend, in 2019, MLive reports over 5,000 people were at the Art, Beer and Wine Festival and of course while 2021 will look a bit different organizers assured in an email, "Safety and community is our top priority and visitors will still be able to enjoy a wide variety of art, beer, wine, and food."

Vendors like artists, breweries, wineries and various food and drinks, are able to apply through April 15th and tickets for those wishing to attend the event are available starting May 1st. However, you may want to make sure to act fast as they are selling at a limited capacity.

Cheers to making Summer 2021 one for the books any way we can!
