Fifth Third Bank Michigan State Fair in Novi

Families get together for tons of rides, games and fun this Labor Day weekend, Aug 29-Sept. 1, 2014 at the Suburban Collection Showplace

The Michigan State Fair offers more than just fair fun – it offers history, too! More than 160 years ago, the Michigan State Fair opened as the country's first statewide fair. Families, experience the history and all the true Michigan fun to be had at the Fifth Third Bank Michigan State Fair at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Aug. 29- Sept 1, 2014.

This year, the fair has been revamped with some new and awesome thrills and activities that can only spell F-U-N for families looking to attend. Aside from live performances, games, art exhibits and the oh-so-scrumptious fair food, this year's fair will feature a new expanded midway full of more family-friendly and thrill rides, livestock exhibitions, pig races and even a circus!

Kids can take part in some of the kid-friendly competitions this year, be a farmer for a day, or hang out in their own special area of the fair, Tiny Totville. Once they're all tuckered out, take them over to the Milking Cow exhibit for the Guernsey Farms Dairy & Sanders Fine Chocolates Endless Cup of Chocolate milk, and don't forget to grab a drink of your own in the craft beer tent.

Event times are as follows:

  • Friday- Sunday: 10 a.m.- 11 p.m.
  • Monday: 10 a.m.-9 p.m.

Adult tickets are $8 on site or $6 in advance while kids are $6 on site or $5 in advance. A $30 wristband is available and includes entry to the fair, circus and rides. Parking is available on-site for $5 for regular-sized vehicles or $10 for large vehicles.
