History

Grass Lake annually celebrates its architectural/agricultural legacy, as well as being one of the thousands of small rural communities in the 1800’s that grew up around a railroad station, architectural rich downtown buildings, homes and museums with the Heritage Day Festival. The festival encompasses one end of the Village to the other along Michigan Ave between the Whistlestop Depot and the Coe House Museum. The streets are filled starting with an open house at both the Depot, and the Coe House Museum. Art/craft vendors selling their wares, and the farmers markets vendors setup in the downtown area with kids games at the Lion's Club. The Whistlestop Depot has a silent auction and train display. The Coe House is open with reenactments and military items on the grounds. The Interurban Car #29 will be open to the public at the Village Hall warehouse at 119 North Lake Street. The annual 5K Run/Walk around beautiful Grass Lake is hosted/sponsored by Andy's Angels this year. Facebook and race entries links are listed below.

Traditionally held on the Saturday following Labor Day, this will prove to be a day filled with fun, education and entertainment for the whole family. Please check the links below for a map of the street and a link to the 5K Run/Walk. Please note you will need JavaScript enabled to view the links. Thank you for your interest in the Heritage Day Festival and please feel free to email the festival committee if you have any questions or concerns at This email address is being protected from spambots.
