    •  The Do-Dah Parade is a Kalamazoo tradition. The parade is nonprofit, community organizing, and a grab your friends kind of event. It is the opposite of the Kalamazoo Holiday Parade and it opens the doors to groups that want to do something silly, dumb, and poke fun of a person, place, or thing. Most ideas evolve from a bar napkin.  It serves a niche and it is tradition.

    • Tap Takeover on the Kalamazoo Mall is a FREE business networking event that celebrates outdoor music, business deals, and Southwest Michigan craft beer.  Each of the five events will feature a different Kalamazoo area brewery and the event will be filled with craft beer industry learning, business networking, and of course socialization. The event is also ends early enough to take advantage of the amazing restaurants located conveniently in downtown Kalamazoo.  It is an event that continues the tradition of after business networking and socialization.

       

      Similar to the former Mixer on the Mall event, Tap Takeover is a little more diligent on highlighting our craft beer industry in an outdoor 2.5 hour event.  It’s similar to a pop-up event that is designed to draw people downtown, but just long enough to encourage them to eat at a restaurant or shop a store before or after the event. It gets people connected and allows our local musicians the opportunity to play outdoors to a business crowd.  The bands can make connections too.   So, the goal is to come downtown to experience the vibrancy and cultural spirit of downtown Kalamazoo.
