What Is Walk The Beat?

We support kids, businesses and local organizations. We build community through music. We are a non-profit organization (501c3) designed to strengthen and promote city music scenes. Music changes lives, so we:

  • Provide kids with free music lessons and instruments
  • Partner with and promote live music venues
  • Act as a support system for your specific music scene
  • Partner with other non-profits to build community through music


The biggest yearly Walk the Beat events are our annual street music festivals.

  • Live music everywhere you look in your downtown.
  • Crowds literally “walk the beat” from show to show
  • Music and prizes at every stop
  • The music, crowds, and prizes create a vibrant festival atmosphere.
  • There are three annual full-scale music festivals this summer, in Montegue/White Hall, Grand Haven, and in Albion.
