Pre-registration is now open for the 2019 Orchard and Vineyard Show.
The 2019 Northwest Michigan Orchard and Vineyard Show is scheduled for January 15-16 and will be held at the Grand Traverse Resort in Acme, Michigan. Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. on January 16th, and the cost for both days is $35 in advance and $40 at the door. The line is often long at the registration desk, so meeting attendees are encouraged to arrive well before the 9:00 start time. Both days will feature educational programs and vendor exhibits.

This year, grape sessions will be held on both days. Tuesday’s sessions will conclude with a social hour.
