Short’s Fest takes place at Short’s Production Facility at 211 Industrial Park Drive in Elk Rapids, MI. The festival entrance is located on Industrial Park Drive. With Harbor Days events taking place simultaneously, parking will be limited and sporadic. We highly recommend carpooling and preparing to walk a bit. We just ask that you please not park on US­31.


Sorry, there will not be any shuttles. We highly encourage carpooling with friends and family, as parking is limited in the area. If you can bike to the festival, we will once again offer a valet bike corral at the festival entrance!
