2022 Clinton Fall Festival takes place Sept. 23-25

CLINTON — It’s that time again — the time when about 20,000 people descend on Clinton for the Clinton Fall Festival.

This year’s festival runs from 10 am to 6 pm Friday and Saturday, Sept. 23 and 24, from 10 am to 5 pm Sunday, Sept. 25.

There will be the usual arts and crafts booths, live entertainment, kids activities, a classic car show and the grand parade, festival chairwoman and president Doris Kemner said.

To help people get around, the festival is providing free shuttle buses and golf carts that will be traveling throughout the festival area from 9 am to 6 pm Saturday and Sunday. Golf cart pickup locations will be south of Michigan Avenue.

“The Southern Michigan Railroad will be running on Saturday and Sunday. People can purchase tickets from the railroad and ride the train from Clinton to Tecumseh or if they want to park in Tecumseh and get on the train they can ride it from Tecumseh into Clinton,” Kemner said. “If people are looking for parking and can ‘t seem to find any, on Saturday and Sunday especially, they’ll be parking available at the Solid Rock Church on Tecumseh Road. Parking is $3 and we do have a bus that will be stopping at the church and picking people up there and taking them up to the festival. The bus transportation is free. Also at the Southern Michigan Railroad headquarters at the end of Bartlett Street they will have parking. We also have golf carts that go around the south side of our community and help pick up people who are parking and bringing them back into the festival. So that is also an option to watch for.”

A section of Franklin Street near Clinton Middle School was full of fair food vendors during the 2021 Clinton Fall Festival.  The food vendors will be back for the 2022 festival, which is Sept.  23-25.

Local churches are involved this year, including Clinton Baptist Church with face painting and balloon animals at their booth, Clinton United Methodist Church with a booth, Solid Rock Church with parking, Clinton United Church of Christ with a booth and Holy Trinity Romanian Orthodox Monastery with traditional Romanian dancing and food. There will also be an ecumenical church service at 10 am Sunday on the Clinton Middle School stage.
