25 Years of Community Fun

Since its inception in 1992 the Fall Festival has annually welcomed well over 2,000 guests to MMCC's Harrison Campus. Mid Michigan Community College, Family Fare Supermarkets and other community members work hard each year to bring this exciting day to our local communities. The Fall Festival, Timber Trail Races, and Vehicle Show help us raise over $20,000 annually to support student scholarships at MMCC.

The event, which is held from Noon to 4:00pm 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:


Go east on Mannsiding Road, turn left at Clare Avenue (stop sign) and continue 1/2 mile straight to MMCC's Main Entrance on Clare Avenue (first right).
