What are people saying?

I am very excited for this year's Milan Fair. I love that the Cone Azalia Classic is now on the same weekend and we are having a family fun ride before their Crit! I am really looking forward to Saturday. If you were at the Summerfest's cornhole tournament you will enjoy the Milan Fair cornhole tournament.

That's not to say that Friday will not be amazing. Live music, and the fireworks? People come from all over for these events, and this year will not disappoint.

66 years of the fair and it is still doing great!

What are people saying?

As the owner of a downtown business the Milan Fair brings a lot to our town! The carnival rides and fireworks are always a huge hit. I hear there is a corn hole tournament this year. Sounds like a lot of fun! I am really looking forward to this year's fair!

What are people saying?

The fireworks are my all time favorite. I live in the downtown area so I love to have friends over to watch the fireworks from my patio. Did you know the same company that operates the Detroit Fireworks run the Milan Fair's fireworks? I was surprised too. Its a big deal!

The beer tent and live music is always a good time too. Its a great way to catch up with friends .
