The festival will be taking a new approach to food vendors and spotlighting West Michigan restaurants and non-profits as explained on their website,

Another new aspect of the festival for 2021 is the festival’s approach to its food. In years past, they’ve curated some delicious custom menus, but now they’ll be getting 6 local restaurants involved to take the reigns. The official food vendors will be Hamburger Mikey, Rad Dads’ Taco & Tequila Bar, Bone Ends, and Fatty Lumpkins Sandwich Shack.


Burning Foot Beer Festival loves the community their located in, and in addition to working with these local restaurants, they are also involved with some wonderful non-profit organizations. Coming back again is Habitat for Humanity, which runs our Bike Valet, as well as Noah’s Project who operates the Shoe Check-In. (No Shirt, No Shoes, No Problem!) The latest addition, Kid’s Food Basket, will be taking care of the new Pretzel Necklace area of the festival.

While the 2021 musical line-up hasn't been released yet, acts featured in prior years point to a pop-rock vibe for the live music stages. Prior artists at Burning Foot include Everclear, Sponge, Eve 6, Less Than Jake, tantric, and more.

As the event is produced by the Lakeshore Brewers Guild, you can expect lots of beer. In fact, over 70 brewers are expected from Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana.
