The Saugatuck Venetian Committee presents:

Sounds of Saugatuck on November 8th, 2014

Three event highlights

The "Sounds of Saugatuck" (SOS) features more than a dozen bars and restaurants offering a variety of music on Saturday afternoon /evening, November 8th, 2014. The event is organized to offer entertainment and showcase the very active off-season bar and restaurant scene here in the Saugatuck-Douglas area.

This seasonal event has become such a huge success, that it now has 14 establishments lined up with a variety of music talent. Music lovers can listen to Reggae at one spot to Jazz at another, by riding a free shuttle service. We have Cindy's Moonlight Express as the official SOS shuttle. "We think it allows for greater flexibility during the event. Participants can travel FREE from one venue to another, plus it would allow the shuttle service to pickup and drop off at their residence for normal taxi rates. This takes the worry out about parking, transportation or weather. A kind of one stop shopping" said organizers.
