The Most Wonderful Michigan Fairs Less Than 2 Hours From Lansing
When I think of summer in Michigan, I think of swimming, live music, fairs, and festivals. And when it comes to throwing some awesome fairs and festivals, the state of Michigan is tops.
2022 Michigan Fairs and Festivals
Fairs and festivals play host to an abundance of events and activities.
Of course, there are plenty of food and drinks. I myself can't make it through a fair/festival without enjoying a carnival lemonade and an elephant ear. But there are plenty of choices when it comes to snacking and meals.
Not to mention activities like 4-H exhibitions and competitions, rodeos, demolition derbies, carnival rides, live music, and more.
The bulk of the fairs and festivals that take place in Michigan occur during the months of July and August. Of course, there are a few outliers that take place in September, but July and August are the busiest.
Lansing Area Fairs and Festivals
For those of us in the greater Lansing area, there are plenty of fairs and festivals just a hop, skip, and a jump away. Those as the Eaton County Fair, the Ionia Free Fair, the Fowlerville Family Fair, the Ingham County Fair, and more.
However, if you wanted to take a bit of a day trip, there are TONS more within a two-hour drive of Lansing.
Take a look through the comprehensive list below, and start your summer planning. Also, if there's a fair you frequent that didn't make the list, be sure to tell us. Just send us a message using the free station app.
