PARISH FESTIVAL GUIDE 2016: THE BIG LIST

It’s festival season again, and for readers of The Michigan Catholic, that means this year’s guide is just as indispensable as ever. Each year, we provide the following list of family-friendly festivals from May through November in the Archdiocese of Detroit for our readers’ convenience and planning.

Runners take off during the 5K at Our Lady Queen of Martyr's Oktoberfest Celebration in Beverly Hills.
