Greater Farmington Area Founders Festival
A favorite in Southeast Michigan, the Farmington Founders Festival began as a tribute to the city’s unique Quaker heritage. The Greater Farmington Area Founders Festival has been a summer tradition with over a quarter of a million-people attending each year. Guests enjoy a long weekend of music, food and fun activities geared for all ages.
The annual Greater Farmington Area Founders Festival presented by Meijer returns this year for its 55th celebration of summer with many new attractions including a major expansion into the city’s Shiawassee Park. A soft opening for the Beer Tent starts at 5 p.m. Thursday July 18, while the full festival runs from July 19 through 21. The festival will be bringing back some traditional events like the parade up Grand River Avenue, the Bingo Tent, Beer Tent, and live music. Several new features including fireworks Saturday night, a children’s carnival, and a pig roast have been added.
The festival will take place at Shiawassee Park on July 18-21, 2019
Free concerts can be seen at the Stage that is located in the Beer Tent
