NOVI, MICH (WXYZ) — The Michigan State Fair presented by Ram Trucks is excited to again partner with Gleaners Community Food Bank on a canned food drive for the first day of the State Fair.
This year's fair will be held August 29 through September 2 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi.
On Thursday, August 29th only, guests can bring three (3) non-perishible canned food items to the gate or ticket office and receive $5 off their purchase of a full-price ultimate wristband. Regularly priced at $30, the ultimate wristband provides entry into the fair, admission into the Shrine Circus, and unlimited rides on the carnival midway.
Hours for the Michigan State Fair, presented by Ram Trucks on Thursday, August 29th are as follows: 10 AM until 10 PM for the interior hall, and 11 AM until 10 PM for the outdoor activities and carnival midway. This promotion is also a great way for fair guests to save money on seeing the brand new Thursday Night Fireworks show at dusk, following live music featuring local and regional bands with our Michigan Mega Jam on the Ascension Main Stage on Thursday evening.
The fair's partnership with Gleaners is just one of many charitable elements to the Michigan State Fair, which has returned more than $2.6 million in donations and charitable contributions to Michigan communities since coming to Novi in 2013, including nearly $600,000 in 2018 alone.
