Brewery Brings Big Name Music Acts to Whitefish

By Beacon Staff

It’s not often national music acts find their way to Whitefish’s Depot Park, but thanks to the Great Northern Brewery two well known artists will be jamming there this summer.

Keller Williams, often described as a “one-man jam-band,” will play Depot Park on Saturday, Aug. 4. The following day, Kyle Hollingsworth of The String Cheese Incident will headline a show featuring Moonshine Mountain, The Lil’ Smokies, 20 Grand and The Dirty Shame. Proceeds from the events will go toward supporting the construction of a live music venue at the Great Northern Veterans Peace Park along U.S. Highway 93 west of downtown Whitefish.

Doors will open at 2 p.m. each day and the headliners will take the stage at 7 p.m. Along with live music, Depot Park will feature food vendors and a beer garden with Great Northern Brewery’s speciality beers on tap. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, May 2 at greatnorthernbrewery.com/store, the Great Northern Brewery and the Whitefish Chamber of Commerce office. Tickets are $25 a day, $45 for the entire weekend. Children under five years old can get into the family friendly event for free. Also, for $100 a day, you can gain access to the Great Northern Lounge, an all-you-can-drink beer garden featuring all of the brewery’s beers.
