23 Years of Community Fun

Since its inception in 1992 the Barbeque & Fall Festival has annually welcomed well over 2,000 guests to MMCC's Harrison Campus. Ticket sales and generous contributions from the community help us raise over $27,000 annually to help support student scholarships.

The event, which is held from noon to 4:00 pm on the second Sunday after Labor Day, serves up pork barbeque with side dishes such as baked beans and potato salad, all generously donated by Family Fare Supermarkets. The day is also filled with plenty of activities for the whole family, including an-ever-favorite Car, Truck and Motorcycle show, children's games, a community art show, health fair and an outdoor stage with a variety of family entertainment. The Clare County Animal Shelter will be bringing dogs and kittens/cats ready for adoption again this year. Let's help them find some forever homes at the BBQ. A popular event from last year will be returning, exhibition wrestling brought to MMCC by Imperial Wrestling Entertainment - a family friendly choreographed entertainment show for both young and old. Bring a lawn chair, or sit on the grass, to watch some lively wrestling entertainment. This is a fun day that you will want to be a part of!!

Car, Truck, & Motorcycle Show

Mid Michigan Community College will be sponsoring a car, truck, and motorcycle show - an event that has been a popular part of the BBQ and Fall Festival for over 11 years. Festival goers both young and old enjoy seeing classics, hot rods, street machines, customs, antiques, trucks and motorcycles; we are asking you to help us fill the front lawn with some of the best.
