3 Spots to Hang with the Graduate Mutt Cutts Van This Summer

Read Article

Our trusty Mutt is ready for its best summer road trip ever. In June and July, we’re hitting the open road, rolling down the windows and blasting “Runnin’ Down a Dream” on repeat.

Our destinations? Georgia, Minnesota and Michigan. Find us parked at three awesome events, putting out the vibe.

If you spot the Sheepdog, share your pics with #graduatemuttcutts and you might get featured on our Instagram.

AthFest in Athens, Georgia | June 22

The Mutt loves music — and BBQ! — so road tripping down to AthFest 2018 is a no-brainer.

Join us at the free three-day fest for the best tunes, grub and art Athens has to offer. We’ll be giving away Graduate Hotels swag and popcorn, and raffling off a Yeti cooler. Is there any better summer accessory?

Learn more about AthFest in our roundup of free summer concerts.

X Games in Minneapolis, Minnesota | July 19

This July, the X Games hit Mill City. Athletes from 18 countries will gather in Minneapolis to compete in BMX, Moto X and Skateboarding events. No word yet if they’ll let us take the Mutt down the 86-foot Big Air ramp, but they’re saying there’s a chance.

Aside from the competitions, the X Games offer plenty of other things to see — check out performances by Kaskade, Brother Ali, Ice Cube and Zedd at The Armory, and meet Twiggy the waterskiing squirrel at X Fest, the “world’s best action sports festival experience.”

Tickets start at just $20.

Manchester United vs. Liverpool in Ann Arbor, Michigan | July 28

Two major football clubs from across the pond face-off at The Big House this summer. See Manchester United take on Liverpool as they compete in the International Champions Cup, the world’s premier annual summer soccer tournament.

The last time Man U played at Michigan Stadium, back in 2014, the game set the record for the largest attended soccer match in the history of the United States with 109,318 fans, so we’re gearing up for an epic tailgate. Like Graduate Ann Arbor on Facebook for details on where the Sheepdog is posting up.
