Memorial Day Fun in Macomb County

Spend the long Memorial Day weekend with your kids at one of these Macomb County events including parades, services and festivals.

Each year on the last Monday of May, our country takes a day off to honor our fallen veterans with a variety of ceremonies, parades, festivals and more, making it the perfect day to get out of the house and enjoy the summer weather.

With COVID still looming (but on its way out), we’re able to celebrate again in 2021 — though this year’s festivities might look a bit different than in past years.

Macomb County is gearing up for the long weekend in 2021 with tons of fun from the return of the Assumption Greek Festival in St. Clair Shores to the New Baltimore Memorial Day Parade and more.

Check out a list of all the fun to be had in Macomb County here and get to planning your family’s fun. Memorial Day will be here before you know it.
