Downtown Northville Victorian Festival

The Northville Heritage Festival, formerly known as the Northville Victorian Festival, celebrates the history of the town Sept. 16-18, 2016.


At 6:30 p.m. Friday, the Victorian Parade commences. See all of the Victorian-era clothing, the horse-drawn carriages and all of the great floats for yourself. The Victorian Saloon beer tent will be open 5-11 p.m. as well.

On Saturday, the fun starts with the Northville Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast 8-11 a.m. and tickets are available at the door.

There will also be a kids’ zone all day, 11 a.m.-10 p.m., full of fun activities for kids of all ages, so bring your youngsters.

The Varsity Lincoln Stage will be hosting many great acts starting at 11 a.m. with the Comedy Juggling Show, then the Joel Tacey Show, The Amazing Clark, and the Mind Tapped Street Theater.

On East Main Street, Farmer John’s Barnyard Express petting zoo will be open noon-5 p.m., full of cute and fuzzy little critters for people of all ages to enjoy. And the Victorian Saloon beer tent will be open again 6-11 p.m.

Sunday, the kids’ zone will be back 11 a.m.-4 p.m., so there is still plenty of time for the kids to have fun and learn about the Victorian era.

Though the name changed, the Victorian Tea at Mill Race Village will still be noon-4 p.m. Sunday. At 3:30 p.m., watch the duck race at Mill Race Village, and see which little ducky wins.

The Varsity Lincoln Stage will be hosting the same performances again on Sunday, with the addition of the John Park Show. Head to town square to see Gemini at noon and 2 p.m., too.

Come out to enjoy some old-fashioned fun. Admission is free, and hours are as follows – though some events run at different times throughout the day:

  • 5-10 p.m. Friday
  • 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Saturday
  • 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday
