But you may not know about the best time to be a foodie in Traverse City, which is indisputably Restaurant Week, which takes place from Feb. 20th until the 26th of this year.

Pride month is a one-month event, but supporting LGBTQ+ run businesses happens year-round for the LGBTQ+ community and allies alike.
