Michigan's End-of-Summer Festivals

Celebrations in the Great Lakes State


 

 

No matter what you’re looking for as the summer winds down, Michigan has a festivity for it. Between the county fairs, heritage celebrations, and food and music festivals, visitors of the Great Lakes State don’t know where to begin.

Looking for an old fashioned carnival? Head to the town of Novi – just 15 minutes northwest of Livonia – for the Great Lakes State Fair during Labor Day Weekend.

Kids can look forward to the Detroit Shrine Circus, while adults may head over to the Michigan Brewery Beer Garden. Headlining country music acts at the Suburban Collection Showplace follows all the rides, food, and games in Novi.

Another great time is found at the Holt Hometown Festival – just 15 minutes south of Lansing in central Michigan. This Michigan festival is held in late August, and features the Merchants Fun Day and Holt & Spicy Salsa Competition – plus live music, food vendors, rides, and a parade.

Hungry? Michigan has plenty of food festivals to accommodate your tastes. Check out the Mackinac Island Fudge Festival in August in northern Michigan – just a quick ferry ride from Mackinaw City.

Craving fresh fruit in Detroit? Check out the Michigan Peach Festival in Romeo, or the Art & Apples Festival in Rochester – both in early September and just northwest of Sterling Heights and Roseville.

The Marquette Seafood Fest – also featuring a car show, live music, and kids activities – is held each August in Marquette – just 15 minutes northeast of Ishpeming.

For the music fan, head to Detroit near Allen Park for the Detroit Jazz Festival in early fall, or check out the Midland Folk Music Festival in late August at the Midland County Fairgrounds in Midland. Set in Hart – 30 minutes south of Ludington – the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival is a feminist music celebration held each August.

Both educational and delicious, heritage festivals are a great way to familiarize yourself with other cultures. Set in late August, the Dozynki Festwal – or Polish Festival – features food, beer, and entertainment at Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids. Set in southern Michigan, the Kalamazoo Scottish Festival is held in early fall at the Kalamazoo County Expo Center & Fairground in Kalamazoo.

Don't fret as the summer ends, because the Great Lakes State features plenty of parties to look forward to. Check out festivals throughout the state.
