Winter Beer Fest. Winter Beer Fest.

The snow may have melted but winter remains, with chilly but bearable temps in the week ahead.

Those temps will become especially bearable after a few beers in the belly, or maybe a big bowl of noodles. This weekend offers the opportunity for both, alongside excellent arts performances and fun parties.

Let's get right to it. Here's what's on our radar for the week ahead:

Winter Beer Fest 2022
LMCU Ballpark
Feb. 26, 1-6 p.m.

The Winter Beer Fest is back! This incredible beer festival is one of the biggest around, and every year they feature hundreds of fresh, local beers from Michigan's finest breweries, plus local music, performers, ice sculptures and carving demonstrations, fire pits to chase away the cold, and food available for purchase.

Official Unofficial Pre-Party for Winter Beer Fest
City Built Brewing
Feb. 25, 12-10 p.m.

It's always a good idea to pregame, even if it's a full day in advance. This unofficial pre-party at City Built features an ice bear, outdoor games, hot eats, beer releases, free live music and more.

Noodle Fest
Sixth Street Park
647 Monroe Ave. NW, Grand Rapids
Feb. 26, 12-5 p.m.

The Grand Rapids Asian-Pacific Foundation announces the first ever Noodle Fest, featuring 10 noodle dishes to battling it out for the title of 2022 Noodle Fest Champion. The 2022 Noodle Fest Champion gets a trophy, bragging rights for the entire year, and will be featured on our website and social media. The winner will also be introduced as the Noodle Fest Champion at the Grand Rapids Asian-Pacific Festival at Calder Plaza in June.

Grand Rapids Ballet & GR Symphony
DeVos Performance Hall

Grand Rapids Ballet kicks off our 50th Anniversary, reviving youthful memories from the classic fairytale, Cinderella, choreographed by renowned choreographer Ben Stevenson, O.B.E. This timeless story journeys alongside Cinderella as her dreams are turned to reality by her Fairy Godmother before she dances the night away with her Prince at a dazzling ball. The Grand Rapids Symphony performs Sergei Prokofiev’s melodic score, as the audience watches Cinderella’s story unfold, leading to her happily ever after.

Stinney: An American Execution
Opera GR
Feb. 25-27

In 1944, George Stinney Jr. was executed at the age of 14. Wrongfully accused of the rape and murder of two white girls, George became the youngest person legally executed in America. Stinney: An American Execution spotlights the agony of this injustice as it reminds us of our aspirations for an enlightened society.
