Christmas In The Village

‘Twas thirty-six days before Christmas, our Village was quiet as a mouse.
But, delighted visitors were stirring in our Open House!
Everyone gathered at the Cady Inn, which stood near
In hopes that Father Christmas soon would be here!

Volunteers were busy in every venue
As they diligently planned and toiled on a festive review.
Weavers Cottage shone bright as Guild members performed all over the place
Weaving, knitting, spinning… and don’t forget bobbin lace!

Mark Radeke Skola Choir and Northville Student Strings Orchestra proudly
Gathered at the New School Church to play a few numbers.
While local Girl Scout carolers entertained arriving new-comers.
Smithy demonstrators performed their craft over a fiery hot forge re-creation.
While Basket Guild demonstrators gave cause for serious anticipation.

Jarod Thompson’s angelic mandolin performance couldn’t be better
Beautiful music created truly does matter!
Decorators galore were buzzing about
To welcome visitors to our halls all decked out.

The JM MEAD store is well stocked and quite festive indeed
Stop on by and come see what you’ll need.
Visit the Cady Inn for a scrumptious cream tea
This sweet extra, for a mere small fee.

With the exception of a small per person charge for the tea, this event is free and open to the public.

Saturday, September 16, 2017 11:00am-11:00pm
Sunday, September 17, 2017 11:00am-4:00pm

Held each September in beautiful Downtown Northville, the Northville Heritage Festival celebrates the rich history and small town charm of the Northville community.  

Incorporated as a village in 1867, the next ten years saw the founding of the local newspaper, The Northville Record, as well as the first diploma awarded from the local high school and the opening of Parmenter's Cider Mill, a community treasure that sits today on Baseline Road.

For the last 150 years, Northville has written a fascinating history as it's grown into the 21st century, while maintaining a cozy, friendly, community.  Much of the city's story is available by speaking with members of the Northville Historical Society and visiting Mill Race Village

The Heritage Festival, formerly known as the Northville Victorian Festival, provides an opportunity for residents of Northville, both past and present, to reminisce, enjoy and celebrate the wonderful town that we've all called home.  It's our pleasure to share our community with visitors who come to shop, dine, attend theaters, work and play.  

The Northville Chamber of Commerce presents this yearly festival proudly, and is grateful for our members, neighbors and guests who support our goal of a successful and thriving Northville.

The Northville Art House shines a spotlight on the imagination, art, talent and cultural diversity of artists throughout the region when the annual Arts and Acts Festival returns for the sixth consecutive year June 16-18 in historic downtown Northville. The Festival includes the 29th annual juried fine art show Art in the Sun, featuring over 70 talented artists;  the Sandbox Play Festival produced by Tipping Point Theatre; theShort on Words Literary Contest; musical entertainment featuring some of metro Detroit’s top musicians; Children’s Activities; the Northville Art House Chalk Festival; our new Young Artist Juried Art Fair; and a large variety of festival food and drink.

Northville’s annual “Arts and Acts Festival” is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Northville Art House.  It is one of the biggest and definitely one of the most diverse summer festivals in metro Detroit. With the exception of the tickets for the Play and Chalk Festivals which are a nominal fee, Arts and Acts is free.  The Art House makes its money through sponsorships and artist booth fees.  Yet a well-attended event is key to our mission:  not only are we bringing the arts to more people, we are encouraging the growth of the Festival, and thus the Art House, in the future.
