Founders Fest is our biggest party of the year--a celebration of beer and music that takes place on the streets of downtown Grand Rapids, right in front of our brewery.
The High Five Program (facebook.com/thehighfiveprogram) is a Michigan-based community organization working with projects to manage greening with a fun and educational perspective. Specializing in large-scale events (like Founders Fest!), High Five assures the prevention of litter and significant reduction of waste streams. The program uses high fives to reward attendees for using sustainable practices. And we're fans of high fives at Founders.
Kevin Cole, one of our sound engineers, shot this video for us during the Founders Fest 2012, which took place on Saturday, June 23, from 3-11pm.
The music for this piece has been provided by Afro Zuma (facebook.com/afrozuma), a 12-piece Afro-beat funk band that got everyone dancing at the festival.
