Founders Fest 2009


(GRAND RAPIDS, Mich) – An estimated 5000 fans of award-winning craft brews will gather on Saturday, June 20 for the 2nd annual Founders Fest outdoor beer and music festival in downtown Grand Rapids. From 3-11pm, the street (Grandville Avenue between Williams and Bartlett) will be blocked and the grounds of the brewery secured for the festivities.“We had a blast with our first Founders Fest last year,” says Mark Dorich, Festival Coordinator and Director of Retail Operations. “We are excited to celebrate with all our friends again.”
A variety of regional entertainment will rock this year’s Founders Fest, with nationally-recognized Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe as the headliner. Other performers include UltraViolet Hippopotamus, Four Finger Five, Chance Jones, Total Blam Blams, Oracle, Back Forty, Red Frog and Mucca Pazza.
Founders Fest is a celebratory “thank you” to Grand Rapids and West Michigan for making Founders what it is today. Founders Brewing Company has been a part of the Grand Rapids scene since 1997 and has grown its brewing tradition from its modest beginnings to most recently being rated the 7th best brewery in the world.
Admission for Founders Fest is $15 ($10 for 2009 mug club members), for those 21 and older. Tickets will be available at the gate.

Cost: $15
