Plymouth’s Fall Festival is back and bigger than ever Sept. 9-11

 Plymouth’s Fall Festival is back and bigger than ever Sept. 9-11

The 2022 Plymouth Fall Festival will be the first with the new Kellogg Park fountain serving as a magnificent centerpiece.

Following pandemic disappointments, event returns with a flourish

Is there a better community-bonding experience than sitting at tables in downtown Plymouth’s beautiful Kellogg Park, enjoying a barbecue chicken dinner cooked by a crew of big-hearted Rotarians?

Not many, if any — at least if you ask longtime attendees of Plymouth’s Fall Festival, which will return restrictions-free Sept. 9-11 to one of the most picturesque downtowns in the United States.

“I honestly think this will be the biggest Fall Festival ever,” said Plymouth Mayor Nick Moroz. “All the events we were used to enjoying before the pandemic will be back with no restrictions. I can’t wait and I know a lot of people share my enthusiasm.”

The three-day Fall Festival will be the first since the new Wilcox Fountain in the heart of Kellogg Park was turned on in October of 2021, adding to ambience of the gathering that was first held in 1956.

Kicking off the weekend’s entertainment on Friday night on the Lou LaRiche Chevrolet State will be Theo Gridiron Spight, the man who has been singing the Detroit Lions fight song at home games since 2004.

Saturday’s entertainment menu will include the Plymouth Optimist Pet show (9 a.m.), performances by the Plymouth-Canton Educational Park’s pompon squads (Chiefettes, Saberettes and Rockettes) (11 a.m.), a performance by the Plymouth Fife and Drum Corp (3 p.m.) and the Polish National Alliance Centennial Dancers at 4:30 p.m.

The always-popular Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast will run from Saturday morning from 7 a.m. to noon under The Gathering just across Penniman Street from Kellogg Park. Tickets are $7 in advance (call Mark Riegal at 734-718-6176 or email him at markriegal@gmail.com) and $8 at the door. Children under 5 eat free.

Proceeds from the event will help the Kiwanis serve the children of the world through its effort to eliminate iodine deficiency disorder, scholarships and donations to the University of Michigan’s Mott Children’s Hospital.

The before-mentioned Rotary Club Annual Chicken BBQ will unfold Sunday, Sept. 11, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. (or until all the meals are sold out).

The festival will feature carnival rides, bingo, a car show, craft show and a variety of booths.
