Michigan: If you seek a pleasant festival, look about this list

Share this:

We think the snow is done for the season (fingers crossed!). We are looking toward packing up the car and heading out for some outdoor fun in our beautiful state. But where to go? And what to do?

Without a doubt, this is the most exhaustive listing of festivals in Michigan that we’ve ever seen — and it was compiled by OhioFestivals.net. In addition to listing Michigan festivals, OhioFestivals.net also lists those in other neighboring states. Check it out. Talk about being a good neighbor. Thanks!

We’ve reprinted the current festival listings below. For links to each of these festivals, click here.
