We had some great entries from individuals and organizations, but our panel selected Eric Campbell of Traverse City who wrote:
As a winner of the Festival Summer, I would chronicle the events on both my personal and company Facebook pages and blog. As the owner of a design firm (Tandem) and one-time music publication creator, I have an eye (and the camera) for good photography and can create well-written and compelling copy.
Would be stoked to win and would do the contest justice in quality coverage!
OK Eric, bring it!! And thanks everyone for your entries!
Absolute Michigan wants you!
In addition to rocking the giveaways all summer long through Festival Summer, a number of our event partners are going the extra mile to provide one lucky winner with 2 FREE passes to every one of the 11 fantastic Michigan festivals listed below!
Michigan’s many festivals and events continue to be a bright light, celebrating what makes Michigan a place we all love.
Because these events are going the extra mile, we sought someone (or a group of someones) who would go the extra mile to share the fun of Festival Summer.
Our team of reviewers will look the emails we’ve received over and choose a winner, so be creative! If you want, feel free to post your entry or your thoughts on the Absolute Michigan Facebook page.

Check Festival Summer for information and all these and many more great events. As you can see, some of the events are over the same weekend, so you better share it with your friends so you have someone to take any extra tickets! And remember, even if you don’t win the big prize, you’re still eligible for every one of our giveaways. And because we want to stay connected, you are eligible to win more than once.
Questions? Post them or email them and we’ll post answers below.
Do I have to go to all the festivals?
No. Some of them are on the same day, and while our team of Michigan experts assures us that someone could attend and enjoy all events, that’s a lot to expect. Share your good fortune with someone who will report for you.
Can more than one person enter?
You may enlist and propose the support of a team, company, nonprofit, friends, family and robots. We will give the tickets to a single person though.
What are you looking for?
Absolute Michigan is all about getting the most out of Michigan. We’re hoping you’ll get out there and enjoy these great events, and that you’ll share them with our readers and the world at large. These events are cool because Michigan is cool.
What we’re asking for is that you share your experience. Be it photos, video, observations, tweets, updates, artwork or whatever you think tells it best. It doesn’t have to be wall to wall coverage and it doesn’t have to be flashy.
