Family Events Stars and Stripes Festival at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi Celebrate America's independence at this patriotic festival in Macomb County, set to run June 29-July 2, 2017. « Previous Next » Shelby Stewart • June 23, 2017 1 Comment Total: 6 4 0 0 1 0 1 Kick off the holiday weekend with a trip out to the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi for the 11th annual Stars and Stripes Festival, June 29-July 2, 2017. Throughout the weekend, expect plenty of activities for kids to enjoy, such as a petting zoo and the pig races. Also, check out all the carnival rides on the fair grounds. Thursday is Family Day, which means half-off wristbands. A big draw for this event is the live entertainment. Many shows are in the line-up, including the Shell Camino monster truck rides, BMX stunt show, and the new Shell Camino Car Crush Demolition Demonstration. There are also a slew of local bands performing, as well as some bigger names like Fuel on Thursday, Smash Mouth on Saturday and BeatleMania Live on Sunday. Bonus: all of the concerts are free! And around dusk on Sunday, catch the fireworks. This will be a great way to celebrate Independence Day and close out the fest. The fair itself is free, but additional fees apply for other activities, like $25/ride wristbands. Concerts are also free, but VIP tickets are available for $10-$25 ($50/four-day VIP status). On site parking is available for $10. Find out more about the 2017 Stars and Stripes Festival the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi in the Metro Parent calendar.
