Third Coast Food & Drink Fest - July 16

The 1st Annual Third Coast Food and Drink Fest  is a fundraiser event to support programs and services at Evergreen.  This event also provides an opportunity to raise awareness of our organization and all we do to support older adults ages 50+. 

The event features fresh/organic food, award winning brews, and wines from the west coast of Michigan! The event encompasses wine and beer pairings, celebrating locally grown and raised food items. Short seminars throughout the evening feature chefs, cooking techniques, and recipes paired with the best local wines and brews. 

Tickets will be $50 and include all food stations, wine and beer tastings, and culinary classes.


Enjoy sumptuous wines from West Michigan and visit the beer garden for the best micro-brewed beers along the Lake Michigan Coast. “Mocktails,” a non-alcoholic twist on favorite cocktails will also be featured. 


From blueberries to bison, the Third Coast Food and Drink Fest will tantalize your taste buds with interesting takes on locally grown and organic foods.  Food stations with short demonstrations on preparing and paring will be scattered throughout The Commons of Evergreen. 


Short cooking seminars will feature some of West Michigan’s finest chefs, nutritionists, local farmers, wine makers, sommeliers and brew masters, working together to create unique dishes.   This is a great opportunity to learn about the health benefits of a food item, cooking technique or the perfect wine or beer to pair with this recipe. 


Proceeds from this event will support Evergreen.  Sponsorships are available by calling the development department at Evergreen at 616-355-5122 or email
