  • 2020 Heritage Festival Canceled

    See you September 17-19, 2021

    We, once again, are in the unfortunate position to cancel another of Northville’s iconic community events, the Northville Heritage Festival that was scheduled for September 18,19,20. The safety and health of our community, guests, volunteers, and staff is our first priority, along with being able to provide a quality event. We ran through multiple scenarios to see if a scaled down event or some other option existed to hold a safe and successful event this summer, but after conferring with our community partners and vendors, it just was not feasible from a safety, financial or event experience perspective.

    With the current uncertainty around holding large events and unknown guidelines and requirements for events this Fall, or this year for that matter, we are unable to be fully confident in the fact it will be safe or permitted. We are beginning to put plans in place for a full slate of events starting in the Spring of 2021, but in the meantime, let’s keep supporting our local business community and keep ourselves safe so we can enjoy all those special occasions we have put on hold.

  • Festival Info

    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.
