Final Friday Experience in Downtown Ludington

The Final Friday Experience will not take place in 2022. Stay tuned for information on the 2023 events.

There are many reasons to be in Ludington in the heart of summer, and one of them is the Final Friday Experience, formerly known as Friday Night Live. Scheduled for the last Friday of the months May-September, this revamped event promises safe fun for the entire family.

There will be partial street closures south of Ludington Avenue, allowing people to fill the streets and watch a variety of live music on five different stages. The event will be held in the parameters of the newly created social district which allows patrons to be outdoors with alcoholic beverages purchased from participating businesses including Jamesport Brewing Company, Luciano’s Ristorante, Sportsman’s Restaurant & Bar, and Ludington Bay Brewing Company. HumaniTea will also have their “Zero-Proof Booth” open on Loomis Street with non-alcoholic drinks available.

Besides live music, there will be activity booths, Baby Badger rides, pony rides, shopping, and more. The Farmers Market in Legacy Plaza (formerly James Street Plaza) is also open during Final Friday Experience. Downtown shops welcome you with smiles and great bargains, and restaurants set up tables outside to tempt you with their specialties.
