The Upcoming Made In Michigan FestivalBuyMichiganProducts.com, an online database featuring Michigan businesses and Michigan-made products, has teamed up with the MSU Product Center, and the Old Town Lansing Association, to create the upcoming Made In Michigan Festival, scheduled for May 20 & 21 in Lansing’s Old Town district. The event, which kicks-off the statewide Michigan Week (May 20-26), will serve to educate Michigan residents about the wealth of products and services available in their home state, and provide a venue for Michigan-based businesses to promote and showcase their products. Interested vendors and participants are encouraged to inquire at www.BuyMichiganProducts.com.

This event is the result of the recent Buy Michigan Products Expo, held last November in Lansing. The Expo brought together many like-minded people who sought to continue the effort to promote Michigan-made products in order to improve our state’s economy. Members of the MSU Product Center’s staff attended the Expo and have worked together with BuyMichiganProducts.com to develop this upcoming event in a festival setting, and staff from the State of Michigan suggested it be held during Michigan Week 2006.

The Made In Michigan Festival will be held outside and under large tents set up in the parking lot at Grand River Ave. and Turner St. in Lansing’s Old Town neighborhood. This outdoor setting will help to highlight many Michigan products that are spring or summer related. Many of the companies attending the Festival are associated with the MSU Product Center for Agricultural and Natural Resources – Michigan State University entity that works with companies statewide to develop business and distribution plans for their Michigan products.  >>>
