A Farmington Favorite

A Farmington Favorite

If it’s summertime, then it’s time for the Greater Farmington Founders Festival! Celebrating its 59th year, the annual event kicks off tonight and runs through Saturday.

Tonight starts with a soft opening including a beer tent and food trucks. Live music from local band Powerplay Detroit begins at 7:00. Main festivities start Friday morning with a Crafters Market, Fido Fest, and a Kids Area complete with live sand art demonstrations and a foam party! The 5K Color Run and Enchantment Under the Sea parade will be Saturday morning’s highlights.

Our friends at the Farmington Farmers Market will keep regular hours on Saturday but have relocated for one day to make room for the festival. You can find your favorite market at Farmington High School. Look for vendor tents in the parking lot near the tennis courts.

Find out more details about this weekend’s fun on the Founders Festival website and don’t miss a Farmington summer tradition!
