Come and see what's happening in Saugatuck - it's a renaissance of food, drink and activity.
After highly successful events starting in 2011 the Slice returns for the tenth year on Saturday September 30th, 2023 from 2 pm – 5 pm with over four dozen of Saugatuck's finest restaurants, shops and galleries opening their doors and inviting the community to come and sample their offerings. Walk the streets of Saugatuck Center and taste your way from restaurant to restaurant, to design store, to liquor store, to retail merchant and back.
Walk the Slice!!!
There is so much to do for the whole family. Listen to 7 bands and stroll along the boardwalk at the plaza overlooking the river or get grooving alongside the dance demonstrations. Bring the kids and check out the Fire Department's antique fire engine, the fire safety trailer and jump in 4 different bouncy houses, Balloon Bender and Face Painter and roving performances.
Grab a map and see if you can taste everything being offered. Your stomach will be full before you get to the end. Get your passport stamped and enter in the lottery for gift certificates to many of these fine venues.
