About Michigan First Summer In The Village 

This day-long  event is hosted by the Lathrup Village Community Foundation and is sponsored in part by Michigan First Credit UnionDTE, and Oakland County Parks and Recreation. It has become a highlight of the summer! Artists from around the state of Michigan gather to display and sell their art, presenting paintings, watercolor, pottery, glass, textile, photography, garden art, jewelry, and more!

Our BBQ Battle in 2015 was the largest amateur rib cook-off in the state of Michigan! 30 local teams competed to see who has the best ribs around!  Our BBQ Battle continues annually and attracts many from near and far to witness the greatest BBQ Battle in the state of Michigan. 

This event sees 5,000+ shoppers and according to our poll, artists and visitors alike always give the Michigan First Art Fest high marks!

“Best organized,” “greatest volunteers,” “ welcoming residents,” “nice variety of art,” and “ reasonably priced!” 
"Great entertainment!" with live bands and a DJ for musical enjoyment.
