 (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.

            “People are becoming more and more passionate about supporting Michigan businesses, and as a result, this festival has grown tremendously each year.  It is an incredible avenue for local businesses to demonstrate their commitment to Michigan, and a spectacular venue for selling products that are made here.” said Buy Michigan Now founder, Lisa Diggs.

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. 

The Buy Michigan Now Festival is scheduled to run from:

·         Noon- 9 p.m. on Friday, August 1

·         1o a.m.-8 p.m. on Saturday, August 2

·         11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sunday, August 3

               In addition to hosting again with downtown Northville, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, Hiller’s Markets, Tom Holzer Ford, Mousetrap Mobile, Absopure, and The Catalyst Company are returning as sponsors of the event.
