Time: 7-11pm

Let’s come together to Celebrate Life, Relax and Rejoice ! Join in our drum circle celebration for the official beginning of summer on the Summer Solstice at Mackinaw Valley Vineyard.

Drummers, Musicians, Dancers, Hoopers and Spinners are all welcome. This year on the summer solstice you can help out local kids and their families in their battle against cancer by joining us at the vineyard; drum, dance. eat, drink and enjoy the beauty of the vineyards.

There will be some drums available for participants to use and people are encouraged to bring their own drums and percussion instruments to join in the drumming.   Dust off your hula hoops, capes, fairy wings and other fun props to dance with in the circle, have fun and help our local kids. Of course you can just sit back and enjoy the circle too!  Once the sun has set the band Coco Loco, known for their Jimmy Buffett style island flair,  will continue with great dance music until 11pm.
