Northwest Orchard & Vineyard Show 1/16-1/17/2024 Traverse City, MI
The 2024 Northwest Michigan Orchard and Vineyard Show is scheduled for Jan. 16-17 at the Grand Traverse Resort in Acme, Michigan. Registration opens at 8 a.m. on Jan. 16 and the cost for both days is $50 in advance and $55 at the door. The line can be long at the registration desk, so meeting attendees are encouraged to arrive well before the 9 a.m. start time. Both days will feature educational programs and vendor exhibits.
One registration (tree fruit or grape session) will give attendees access to both the tree fruit sessions and grape sessions for both days.
The fruit industry luncheon will be Tuesday, Jan. 16, and is open to both tree fruit and grape registrants at a first come first serve basis.
There will be two separate lunches on Wednesday. One room will hold the grape industry luncheon and the other will hold the Cherry Marketing Institute luncheon.
Cherry Marketing Institute annual meeting and luncheon will be Wednesday, Jan. 17. Wednesday’s Cherry Marketing Institute luncheon is free to cherry growers if they pre-register through the Northwest Michigan Orchard and Vineyard Show online registration. If growers do not have access to a computer, please contact Cherry Marketing Institute at 517-669-4264 to register for the lunch.
The exhibit hall will be open during the show to feature vendors of orchard and vineyard equipment and supplies, commodity organizations and other exhibitors.
Both Tuesday and Wednesday will offer a variety of topics relating to research and information on tart cherries, sweet cherries, apples and wine grapes addressing production and marketing. Cherry, apple and grape sessions will be held on both days. Tuesday’s sessions will conclude with a social hour.
The program is presented by the Northwest Michigan Horticultural Research Foundation with collaboration from Michigan State University Extension and AgBioResearch, Cherry Marketing Institute, Parallel 45, Michigan Wine Collaborative, and the MSU Northwest Michigan Horticulture Research Center.
