Lansing is alive and celebrating the end of the summer with all sorts of events that promise to make this weekend one to remember.

Educator Happy Hour will be hosted at Lansing Brewing Company, located at 518 E. Shiawassee St., from 3 to 6 p.m. on Friday, Aug 18. All educators are invited and promised $2 off appetizers and $1 off cocktails after ID is shown.

Nadia Theders, experience architecture major at Michigan State University and a server at LBC, has worked a few of these happy hours before and remembered them with a smile.

“Our teachers don’t get paid enough,” Theders said, “and they have to deal with so much. We offer them a discount and a chance to come in and get a beer and just hang out.”

Lansing Taco and Tequila Fest is scheduled for this Saturday, Aug. 19, at 4 p.m., at Adado Riverfront Park, located at 201 E. Shiawassee St., across the street from LCC’s main campus.

This is a new event for Lansing. It will feature over 100 different tequilas to sample, with other options made available including margaritas, sangrias and beer.

This is an outdoor festival. There will be food trucks, live music, vendors and more to enjoy along with a few sips of the hard stuff.

General admission tickets are available now for $35. The cost is $40 on the day of the event if they are still available. This ticket includes entry, access to the main festival, a souvenir glass and 10 alcohol sampling tickets.

There is also a VIP ticket available for sale. It is now available for $65, or for $70 on the day of the event if not sold out.

This ticket allows entrance at 3 p.m., instead of 4 p.m., access to the VIP section, one sampling ticket for all tequilas in the main festival area, a dated souvenir glass, along with 20 other sampling tickets.

Designated drivers are allowed in for $10 because being safe always deserves a discount. This is a non-drinking ticket but does include free water and admission to the festival.

This is an event that has promised to withstand any weather Michigan might throw it’s way, so plan for every season just in case and click here to secure a ticket now.

ArtFeast will bring an eclectic assortment of artwork and food trucks to Lansing’s Old Town on Saturday, Aug. 19 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This festival, according to organizers, is quickly becoming a destination for emerging, as well as established artists, from around the region.

Over 100 artists will participate in the event. More than 30 unique boutique shops, five art galleries and 10 restaurants will be open for guests, as well as many local food trucks.

The ArtFeast is centered around the Turner Street region of Old Town on Lansing’s north side. For more information go to the ArtFeast page on Facebook.

The Studio Ghibli Fest is welcome to all ages and will be occurring this Sunday, Aug. 20, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Downtown Capital Area District Library, located at 3500 S. Cedar St.

This is a chance to enjoy a family friendly event and is completely free. Snacks will be provided and the title chosen this week is “Castle in the Sky.”
