Western Michigan festivals.

Michigan events are theme based so it's easy to understand what the event is centered around.

With so many orchards in these regions many events are centered around these locally produced treats.

One reason Sue and I love Michigan festivals like South Havens Blueberry Festival is we can pig out on all kinds of blueberry products.  

It seems like every little Michigan village and town has at least one festival.  

Many of these events in Michigan book top entertainment that always draws big crowds. 




Through the years we have enjoyed many national top bands and acts.  You can watch local performers put on amazing shows that usually are free to attend.  Sometimes they are better than the headliners!

I don't know where you can have as much fun for the money.If you want to avoid the big crowds try attending the larger Michigan festivals on a weekday.

Take the time to chat with artisans, winemakers, and craftsmen to learn about their trade.

Spring, summer, fall, and winter-every season is festival time in Michigan. Be sure to plan for the weather. Summer heat or winter cold is no fun without the proper attire.

We always carry extra sweatshirts and a change of clothes.  Michigan weather can be fickel so plan accordingly.

As one would expect ... all the beach towns host great fireworks on the 4th of July!
