Soaring Eagle Arts, Beats & Eats, a Labor Day custom in Metro Detroit for hundreds, is gearing up for a big anniversary this year — its 25th.
The popular four-day pageant returns Sept. 2-5 to downtown Royal Oak and Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort has signed a multi-12 months deal to continue on as the festival’s title sponsor. Flagstar Lender also has signed on to continue to be the presenting sponsor by way of 2025.
“It has been a worthwhile expertise to be a aspect of Arts, Beats & Eats, just one of the Midwest’s largest and most thriving festivals that brings outstanding art, remarkable songs and a mouthwatering array of food to downtown Royal Oak,” reported Raul Venegas, executive director of marketing and amusement & product sales for Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort in a press launch.
This year’s pageant will again contain multiple phases with a wide variety of significant identify performers, dozens of meals sellers and a whole artwork clearly show. The audio lineup will be introduced in late July. Jim Beam will be the title sponsor of the festival’s nationwide audio phase this calendar year.
“What a excellent 25th anniversary present and validation to have these partners extend their roles at the festival,” explained Jon Witz, Arts, Beats & Eats producer. “Not only do we get vital funding to continue on the festival at a substantial stage, but Soaring Eagle, Flagstar and Jim Beam’s commitments will guide not only to a terrific function in 2022, but for many years to appear.”
And for people with children on the autism spectrum, Soaring Eagle Arts, Beats & Eats also will open up a person hour early every day to give them free personal entry to the festival’s carnival with less crowds. People need to register in advance at artsbeatseats.com/relatives-times.
More than 365,000 people today attended last year’s pageant, generating nearly $400,000 to donate to area charities. Considering the fact that the event commenced in 1998, far more than $6 million has been lifted by the competition for neighborhood and charitable groups.
