The 2019 Heritage Day Festivities return the weekend after Labor Day on Saturday, September 7, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 


Grass Lake annually celebrates its agricultural legacy, as well as being one of the thousands of small town communities in the 1800’s that grew up around a railroad station, 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 & Coe House, horse or tractor drawn wagon rides between the two destinations,  arts & crafts booths, a tractor show highlighting local farming equipment, a 5K Run/Walk, live music and war reenactments down on the West end of Michigan Avenue near the Coe House Museum. The Interurban Car #29 will also be available for the public to see as well, on the Village Hall grounds at 119 N. Lake Street, plus a whole lot more!

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 on the bottom of this page where you’ll find this year’s flyer, a map of the street and a link to the 5K Run/Walk. Please note you will need JavaScript enabled to view the links. Thanks 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.
