From classic rock to eclectic cuisine, the Greater Farmington Founders Festival is the Farmington area's can’t miss event!

The Farmington Founders Festival, a favorite southeast Michigan event, celebrates 50 years in 2014. What began as a tribute to the city’s unique Quaker heritage is now a weekend-long celebration of crafts, music and community.

The Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce has taken over the reins of the festival organization and planning in 2014, just in time for the 50th anniversary! The Chamber has a long history of organizing the festival.  The Farmington Board of Commerce (now known as the Greater Farmington Area Chamber of Commerce) took over the festival in 1965.  With the Farmington Board of Commerce involved, the festival expanded beyond the downtown to become a city and township wide celebration! Today the festival is an exciting mix of community traditions and cultural trends.
