The Michigan State Fair will be held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI. Since the inaugural Fair in 2013, over 43 additional acres have been acquired to maintain the pace of the Fair’s growth and to ensure ample parking. Increasing the Showplace and Fairgrounds property by nearly 80% allows for more exterior space to add the Equestrian Show Rings debuting this year and expanded Detroit Shrine Circus performances. It also means that there is much more interior room for additional livestock breeds shows; Midway rides; competitions of all sorts; a Farmer’s Market; Tiny Totville; Home Arts; Live Music; Cooking Demonstrations; the Celebration Beer Garden and much more.
