The History of Lapeer Days
Lapeer Days is an exhilarating experience for the entire family! The festival takes place in beautiful downtown Lapeer, Michigan during the height of the Summer when the community is at it’s most beautiful. This is Lapeer County’s premier FREE festival. The Lapeer Days festival has grown in popularity to become one of MID-MICHIGAN’S premier FREE festivals!
We hope to see you and your entire family there! There’s so much to see and do for every member of the family. You don’t want to miss it.
On Aug. 28, 1902, Alonzo A. Bostick and his son Austin celebrated the grand opening of Bostick Stove Works in Lapeer. Neither Alonzo nor his son could have foreseen the legacy they bestowed on our community. The simple grand opening celebration inspired the idea of a community festival held for the first time the following year. The Lapeer Days Festival was born. From simple beginning’s it has grown over the years to become the county’s largest festival and Michigan’s largest FREE festival!
