Handmade Music Festival Presents the First Annual Jive-K 5K

Handmade Music Festival presents the first annual Jive-K 5K September 15 at Showboat Park!

Walk, run, or jive your way through this scenic venue along the Shiawassee River. Chesaning’s amphitheater, located inside Showboat Park, was home to many musicians, dancers and members of their wonderful community for decades. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the preservation and maintenance of the amphitheater.

The $25 registration fee includes Handmade tie-dye shirt! Pre-registration is
important because shirts are being made prior to the event. The registration
form can be found here.

Once registered, you can pick up your t-shirt packet on Friday, September 14th at LaClair Sales from 8am-5pm or from 8am-8:45 a.m. the morning of the event. First, second, and third place trophies will be awarded for winners. There will be live music and prizes throughout the course.

“Help build an experience that future generations will enjoy as a community tradition. Get out and treat yourself to dancing in the park! With your friends! In the morning! You know a day that starts out with dancing is only going to get better!”

About the Handmade Music Festival

The Handmade Music Festival was created by and for the love of music and community. We are creating an atmosphere where the music flows freely, as does love, friendship, and gratitude. Music is a universal language bringing generations together and that is our mission.

A portion of the proceeds of this festival will be donated to Showboat Park/Amphitheater and to The Healing Nest located in Corunna, Michigan.

We are creating the perfect atmosphere while swaying to a handpicked playlist of bluegrass, psychedelic folk, Americana, and soul. We are kicking off our inaugural year with “Music from the Mitten.” A celebration of Michigan musicians and their original music – handmade and homegrown. That is who we are. We look forward to celebrating with you.
