Life is Short’s. And we’ve got a lot to celebrate.

Save the date and join us Saturday, April 30th for Anni Party 18, for a celebration of all things Short’s in our hometown of Bellaire, Michigan.

We’re closing the street and rocking the block with food trucks, live music, and a host of beers and ciders you won’t find anywhere else in the universe. As always, proceeds go towards community development in our region. Get your tickets, and come see the new Mart, party pavilion, and all our smiling faces.

To honor existing ticket holders, we are releasing a super limited number of tickets for sale so get yours quick!
