Warren Birthday Bash at Warren City Square

Celebrate the City of Warren's birthday with live music, food and fun at the annual Warren Birthday Bash, Aug. 23-26, 2018.

Warren City Square hosts this year’s Warren Birthday Bash, complete with live entertainment and family-friendly activities, so come down and join in the festivities Aug. 23-26, 2018.

Starting on Thursday, go check out a carnival that’s jam-packed full of fun rides and games of luck, live performances by local musicians, art displays and a movie under the stars at dusk.

All those same activities continue Friday and Saturday except, instead of another movie, there will be a fireworks display at dusk Friday and a laser light show on Saturday.

On Sunday, all of the same fun continues but with the added bonus of a farmer’s market full of fresh, locally-grown produce and products up for grabs.

But that’s not all. The celebration also includes pig races and petting zoo all weekend; plus a kids’ entertainment area, hands-on presentations and dog agility shows, at which families can watch some talented pups leap, run and roll their way to victory.

This fest promises to be fun for the whole family, so layer on the sunscreen and get in one more metro Detroit August festival before the school year picks back up.

The festival times and dates are as follows:

  • Thursday-Friday: 4-10 p.m.
  • Saturday: noon-11 p.m.
  • Sunday: noon-10 p.m.

Admission is free but fees apply for some activities and events, including the carnival rides.
