50th annual festival August 14-17

For the 50th year in a row, Greenville will honor its Danish history and heritage with the Danish Festival taking place throughout the city August 14-17.

The Festival, which has a long and established history of celebrating Danish traditions, is aimed at providing unique events and fun entertainment for visitors of all ages.

This year’s event, carrying the theme of “The Red Shoes,” will feature live music, an arts and crafts fair, a grand parade, a fairy tale parade, a family fun day, sports tournament, car show, art at the green, a talent show, truck and tractor pull, and a grand prize raffle.

New this year is “The Rock Show,” an ultimate tribute to Journey at Klackle Orchard’s Pavilion, on Saturday, August 16, from 7-9 p.m. Included that night will be the hot air balloon glow, a huge display of fireworks at dusk and Tivoli Beer Gardens from 7 to midnight both Friday and Saturday nights. The band “Decades” will play Friday from 9 to midnight, and “Three’s a Crowd” on Saturday night.

“With gas prices climbing, and many long distance trips cut from the family budget, we encourage families from around Michigan to consider driving the short distance to Greenville from an affordable mini-vacation,” said Pam Jorae, Executive Director. “The Festival truly offers something for everyone.”

More than 75,000 people are expected to attend this year.

“The Danish Festival has been the pride of the Greenville community for 50 years,” said Jorae. “No matter what tough times the economy might bring, once a year the Festival gives Greenville a reason to celebrate its strong heritage and proud history.”
