Yes! We have shuttles running from 12 pm to 11 pm with three pick-up and drop-off locations. Visit our Transportation page to learn more. 

Absolutely! The vessel MUST be empty when you enter the event. This includes Camelbacks. NO exceptions. There are igloo cooler water stations located throughout the event space that you can use to fill up your vessels. A tip: let the water in the cooler run a bit, then it will get cold.  Remember, we ARE on a beach with hopefully a lot of sun!

You can email us at [email protected] or on our Facebook or Instagram page.  Please remember that during the week of the event, we are at the beach up to 14 hours a day building the event, so there will be delays in getting a response.

No, the Burning Foot site plan is not built to handle pop-up tents. You are more than welcome to set them up outside the event space on the beach and enter and exit the festival grounds as you wish.

Burning Foot is an open-air event, so if there is a chance of rain, please bring proper coverage. We also have a check-in area setup if you want to avoid carrying your items around with you.

Yes, but that is the only outside food allowed into the festival grounds.

You can park anywhere along Beach Street or at any of Pere Marquette park’s parking lots. Come early if you want to park close. Please be aware that some parking spaces can be up to 1/2 mile away. You will have to PAY FOR PARKING. Daily passes can be purchased for $10, or you can purchase a yearly pass for $20.  All parking passes must be purchased at the city-owned pay stations.  If you are a resident of the City of Muskegon, your parking pass from the city applies!

YES! We will have Food Trucks to choose from, plus The Sandbox (VIP) has its own food options as well. View our Food Truck vendors here.

YES! There will be a shoe or beach chair check-in area. You will have the chance to go full burning foot (barefoot!) without worrying about losing anything you don’t want to carry around with you. This is a fundraiser for our friends at Noah’s Project and a small donation is needed to check in items. All proceeds go to Noah’s Project.

YES! Part of Burning Foot’s culture is to have some killer music. We will always have a blend of local, regional, and national headliners, and are always looking for ways to grow our music offerings. If you are interested in performing at Burning Foot, please fill out the form on our Music/Bands Page

 

A list of breweries will be in the passport book you receive at entry with your drink tickets. Or you can visit our list online, here.

YES! We will have some Seltzer and Gluten-free beer options at the festival. Your program will be marked with Seltzer and Gluten-Free options. We are, however, a beer festival so the mass majority of offerings will be delicious (and gluten-filled) craft beer.

Sign up to become an Enthusiast Member and get early entry into Burning Foot Beer Festival! Sign up to enter festival grounds at 2pm and get first access to breweries, food, and more. Please note: You will still need to purchase a Burning Foot ticket to enter.

As any great festival goes, we need a strong team of dedicated volunteers to make it happen. Visit our Volunteer Page to sign up! Every volunteer will receive 1 ticket to Burning Foot (and all items that come with the ticket), a volunteer T-Shirt, and an exclusive invitation to our  Volunteer and Vendor Appreciation Party will take place on Friday, August 23rd at the festival grounds.
