Join the Tour
At this time, the Arts and Eats team is cautiously preparing for the 2021 tour. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we anticipate this being a year of flexibility and adjustment as we adapt to the ever-changing situation in Southwest Michigan. While a 2021 tour is in no way assured, we have chosen to begin tentative preparations in the hope that things will be better in the coming fall.
