(Livonia, July 8, 2014) – Governor Rick Snyder has officially proclaimed July 28-August 3, 2014 Buy Michigan Week. To celebrate, the Buy Michigan Now campaign keeps the tradition alive by hosting the Buy Michigan Now Festival August 1-3, 2014 – now in its 6th season in downtown Northville.
Hosted by the Buy Michigan Now campaign and downtown Northville, the family-friendly weekend celebration focuses attention on Michigan-based businesses and locally-produced merchandise with exhibitors in tents on the street. This year’s Buy Michigan Now Festival welcomes more than 100 businesses representing more than 60 cities across Michigan to downtown Northville, which is also home to many independently-owned restaurants, boutiques, and galleries for guests to enjoy.
The event also features live entertainment, scrumptious food, and a Kids Zone dedicated to family fun. Admission to the festival is FREE, as is parking in the surrounding lots and structures. Main and Center streets in downtown Northville will be closed to allow for pedestrian traffic.
