OVERVIEW: WHY WAS BLUE IN THE FACE CREATED? Blue in the Face was created in 2004 by Scott Alexander. He was looking for a way to grow his company, and he wanted to give back to the community as well. After studying competitors like “Destination Grand Rapids,” “Visit Ann Arbor,” and “Visit Minneapolis,” Scott knew that he had to create a destination for the same reason other businesses succeed: people love coming to see what others have done with their town. Blue in the Face Traverse City was created to be a uniquely fun way for communities around Minnesota to come together and enjoy what each has to offer.
Blue In The Face Traverse City has recently grown into one of the nation’s best destinations, but our roots are deep. We’re an award winning local institution built by hands-on leaders who have committed their time and resources to making our community great.
