We are sad to announce that the 2021 Empire Hops & Harvest Festival has been cancelled.
Due to a number of events beyond our control, we have decided to cancel the Empire Hops & Harvest Festival 2021. We were looking forward to dancing in the street in Empire again, but we’ll have to defer that hope yet again.
This is a difficult time for so many workers and businesses, and unfortunately, our vendors are already stretched thin. Rather than adding to their workload with a separate event, we hope you will choose to support our local businesses on-site at their establishments. The pandemic has been an extremely busy time in northern Michigan, so please be patient if you are visiting local businesses, as many are struggling to support the current demand.
We also want to continue to protect our community, and it feels that we are best able to do that by limiting large gatherings. We wish you all the best and that we can gather together soon. Have a happy and safe harvest season!
We are hoping that next year brings us back together!
