Well, we’ve waited as long as we could, but things just aren’t looking good. So, it just absolutely breaks my heart to have to announce that we have to cancel the Lilac Festival this year. This is a decision that was not made lightly. But the health and safety of our community and vendors need to be top priority. We will look forward to building on next year’s festival and make it a great year!! Stay safe and healthy everyone, and we will see you in 2021!!
Come join us during day two of the Lilac Festival in Barryton, Michigan. Bring your car or motorcycle of any vintage and show them off on Northern Ave. (Main St.) in downtown Barryton. There will be a parade at 11 am that you’re invited to be part of. Line up for the parade begins at 10 am at the Barryton Elementary School with the Car Show beginning after the parade. Cruise along with the parade, give folks a good look at your ride and pull right into your parking spot at the end of the parade. If you’re interested in joining the parade, we can collect car details for the announcer.
Barryton is located on M66 north of M20 and south of US10 in Mecosta County. Join us June 6th, 2020 at Noon (sign-in begins at 11:30am) and let’s fill Main Street with some of the sweetest rides in the state! Judging begins at 3 pm with Trophies awarded 4pm after judging is completed. We will be awarding trophies for The Longest Ride (furthest distance driven), Best of Show Car/Truck, Best of Show Motorcycle, Best GM, Best Ford, Best Mopar, Best Truck, and Top 20. Entry Fee: $10 per vehicle. For questions or further info contact Kathryn Kerr @ 989-289-2556 or visit our Facebook page. Hope to see you here and don’t forget to enjoy food and craft vendors in Central Park in town all weekend.
