Due to Coronavirus

Michigan Safe Start Regions

For the 2021 event season, we are carefully considering each event opportunity with State mandates and health implications on our mind. We will consider events complying with the new MDHHS mandate on a case by case basis and urge you to contact us if you'd like us to take a look at your proposal. We are currently only providing services in "MI Safe Start" Region 6.

Have You Considered Live-streaming?
We are encouraging wedding and event clients to consider live-streaming these days and confidently assure you that our new high quality broadcast grade production gear will meet or exceed your expectations. Our production personnel have produced national and regional commercials and other broadcast content for decades, so we have the expertise and resources to do it right.

We have rentals
If you'd like to proceed with your event, we are happy to rent you state of the art audio systems and lighting packages. You will provide your own music. All of our rental systems are sanitized both prior to and following your use. Click here to learn more about our rentals (we set up and pick up when you're event is over) http://freshwaterevents.com/rental

Now Booking 2021-2022
We are booking / holding dates secured with a deposit for the 2021-2022 event season. If the date you select becomes undoable due to our extended public health crises, your deposit will be applied toward a rescheduled date. We are cautiously hopeful that our industry will be back, at least on a limited bases by July/August, depending upon how the vaccine rollout goes. We all long to return to normal

We'd love to talk with you. Please click the Booking tab (top right of page) or drop us an email at Bookings@FreshwaterEvents.com
