Zehnder’s Ragtime Festival Celebrates 29 Years

Mar 29, 2024

Ragtime music has entertained millions since its inception in the United States in the late 1800s. The syncopated rhythms will be celebrated once again at the annual Zehnder’s Ragtime Festival from April 24-26, 2024. Ragtime musicians from around the country will gather at Zehnder’s restaurant in Frankenmuth, MI., just 90 miles north of Detroit.

“We are so pleased to host the 29th anniversary of the Ragtime Festival, “said Zehnder’s chairperson and CEO Al Zehnder. “We can attest that there are hundreds of Ragtime enthusiasts who make an annual visit to Frankenmuth for this musical event. It’s a great tribute to Ragtime and musicians who have made this event a very special tradition.”

Ragtime is considered the first truly American musical genre. Attendees will enjoy flashy piano styles, beautiful melodies, witty songs, and rhythmic boogie-woogie.

The 29th Annual Zehnder’s Ragtime Festival continues to feature the finest musicians, the “Best of the Best” seasoned ragtime performers from across the country, including Michigan’s own Bob Milne. Milne is considered by many to be the best boogie-woogie pianist in the world; he is an active musical ambassador for the United States.

Guests can enjoy lunch and dinner concerts, and plenty of fun with highly entertaining music, stories behind the music, and camaraderie among the entertainers.

Ticket prices vary for the five events from $34 to $52, and $70 for the grand finale dinner buffet show. For a complete listing of concerts, menus, pricing and to book online, go to ticketing.zehnders.com, or call (989) 652-0450 for more information and reservations.
