Saugatuck Venetian Festival

It’s a big weekend in Saugatuck as the 2018 Venetian Festival gets underway this Friday. Sherry Tedaldi from the Cowhill Yacht Club, which is hosting the festival, spoke with WSJM News about opening Friday.

“On Friday we start out at 5 p.m. with children games, and the door does open to the park at that time,” Tedaldi said.

Tedaldi said there will also be barbecue, and then the music starts.

“Our band starts at 7:15,” Tedaldi said. “Our band is Star Farm.”

Tedaldi noted the Friday’s 80s music is more like a concert than a dance. The complete schedule of fun events can be found at
