Events and Things To Do!

Snowshoe, Wine & Brew!

Grab your Snowshoes – or call us and rent a pair for the day – then come enjoy the great wine and beer that Old Mission Peninsula has to offer!

Every Sunday, starting January 7 through March 11, spend your Sunday afternoons on an Old Mission Snowshoe Wine & Brew outing. Snowshoe ‘season’ will be dependent on weather conditions.

Park at Jolly Pumpkin to board the TC Brew Bus and start your trek! The TC Brew Bus will transport you to Brys Estate Vineyard and Winery. From there you will follow a flagged snowshoe trail across Old Mission Peninsula to Bowers Harbor Vineyards, then snowshoe back to where you parked at Jolly Pumpkin.

To reserve your spot for select shuttle times and to purchase tickets, visit:

Tickets are $28 per person and include:

– Parking and shuttle service from Jolly Pumpkin to Brys Estate.

– 5 samples of wine at Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery! If you decide to linger and sip in the breathtaking views, enjoy $5 glass of wine specials. 10% off wine purchases, and they will deliver your purchases to Jolly Pumpkin.

– 5 samples of wine and/or hard cider at Bowers Harbor Vineyards! Huddle around the outdoor fire pit and take advantage of $5 glasses of wine or pints of hard cider. 10% off wine and hard cider purchases, and they will deliver your purchases to Jolly Pumpkin.

– 5 samples of beer or spirits at the Mission Table tasting room in front of Jolly Pumpkin! 10% off Jolly Pumpkin or North Peak beers and Civilized or Old Mission spirits to take home.

Snowshoers are encouraged to check in on Facebook at each stop and get a stamp on their flier. If you check in and get a stamp at each stop, you will receive a snowshoe souvenir wine glass at Jolly Pumpkin!

These tours will run every Sunday, snow or no snow! You can still enjoy the path without snowshoes if there isn’t enough snow.

** If you want to rent snowshoes from us please call us AFTER you have completed your reservation online at 231.715.1287 . Each pair is $15 to rent and paid for at time of reservation, limited supply!
