If you enjoy parades, great food, live entertainment, crafts, classic cars, and carnival rides, and ESPECIALLY if you like peaches, you’ll definitely want to be in the beautiful Village of Romeo, Michigan, for the 2014 Michigan Peach Festival. Sponsored by The Macomb Daily, Sheena’s Marketplace of Romeo, Buffalo Wild Wings and Advisor & Source Newspapers, this year’s festival is on Labor Day Weekend and has events running Thursday, August 28th thru Monday, September 1st.
What kind of events? Like most small-town festivals all over our great state, the charm is in the intimacy of strolling (or running if you care to join the 23rd annual Fun Run) through shop-lined streets all the while taking in the carnival-like atmosphere only a village can offer.
Besides the good times, there’s some GREAT food and some great beer on tap, whether it be from the concession stands or one of the festival’s featured meals, such as the K of C Pasta Dinner on Friday evening, the VFW Steak Out Dinner on Saturday night, or the Peach Festival Farmer’s Breakfast on Sunday morning, you certainly won’t leave hungry. And did I mention peach pies? You certainly won’t want to miss out on a slice of Mike & Ruth’s Hilltop Farm’s Homemade Peach Pie.
The Romeo Peach Queen reigns over this popular annual event set in this small agricultural community. It features turn-of-the-century architecture and a schedule of events and activities that will give you a glimpse of the way small towns used to celebrate their harvests.
From baby and pet photo contests, a children’s parade and softball tournaments to bed races and local cheer exhibitions, there’s CERTAINLY something fun for everyone. Bring your family and friends to the Michigan Peach Festival in the beautiful Village of Romeo.
