The event runs from 1-6pm and is held at Legacy Plaza on north James Street in Ludington.

Pre-sale tickets are available for purchase online only. They are generally $35/person, include six drink tokens, and will go on sale on December 1st, 2023. Each token is good for 5 oz. of beer or cider. Five additional tokens can be purchased for $5. There is also live entertainment and food available for purchase during the event.
