The 54th annual Birmingham Village will be coming back to Shain Park in Downtown Birmingham June 1st through the 4th.
The four-day event will feature carnival rides, games and food that all community members can enjoy. The fair will be on the streets surrounding Shain Park in Downtown Birmingham. Admission to the fair is free and ride vouchers and tickets are available for purchase.
“Not only is the Village Fair an important fundraiser for the Birmingham Bloomfield Chamber, but it really has become Birmingham’s unofficial start to summer,” said Chamber President Joe Bauman.
“Now in its 54th year, we love hearing stories from residents who tell us about how they remember going to the Village Fair with their parents and grandparents, and now they are bringing their children and grandchildren to what really is a community celebration.”
In addition to being the Chamber’s major fundraiser, Bauman said more than 15 local nonprofits also receive proceeds from the fair through a grant process.
“We have distributed nearly $100,000 to local nonprofits in the past six years, and we could not do this without the generous support of our presenting sponsor, United Shore Financial Services and the carnival operator, North American Midway Entertainment,” Bauman said. “And we are grateful to the city of Birmingham for allowing us to use Shain Park and downtown Birmingham as the most incredible backdrop for the fair.”
The fair plans to raise money for many non-profit organizations in the surrounding area. A few of the local organizations that will benefit from the fair include: Birmingham Youth Assistance, The Bottomless Toy Chest and The Village Players.
