The Big Mitten Fair and Festival is a celebration of Americana that begins Thursday, September 3, and ends Monday, September 7.

In celebration of the Irish Hills heritage, the fair commences with a Celtic party hosted by Experience Jackson and featuring American Rogues. Americana Music will be highlighted nightly with performances by The Wood Brothers and Gill Landry of Old Crow Medicine Show fame. Big Rock Amusements will be presenting midways at both the Big Mitten Way and Kids Go Zone. An exciting Teen Hub is planned with a skate park, karaoke stage, recycling demos, lounge area, photo shoots and more. The Big Drive on the world’s fastest 2 mile oval is also on the schedule.

It is very exciting that the Big Mitten Fair and Festival has chosen the Irish Hills and the Michigan International Speedway to host this great event. The Speedway’s goal has been to make the Michigan International Speedway a year-round entertainment destination, and adding the Big Mitten Fair and Festival to their growing lineup of other premier events will bring even more economic impact to Jackson County.
