Bring a chair or a blanket or come early to get a picnic table. Several vendors will be on hand to sell a variety of food items. 
You are welcome to bring your own as well. Listen, dance, eat and drink. 
But most of all, come and enjoy some of the great music West Michigan performers have to offer.
