The Mid Michigan Renaissance Festival has been in operation since 2008.  The reason for the development of this this festival was to provide a more flexible experience for merchants, staff, entertainers, playtrons and patrons.  Mid Michigan Renaissance Festival strives to provide an enjoyable experience for EVERYBODY.

The Vassar/Frankenmuth area was chosen for the MMRF because of it's prime location near Frankenmuth, the number one tourist spot in Michigan, and Birch Run, the location of a large outlet mall.  This ensures that traveling to MMRF will provide many things to do and a long weekend can be easily created by attending MMRF.

2008-2010 were great successes.  We have had our trouble with the gamble in October weather, but we have also have had many blessings from WARM October weather.  Attendance all three years have been great for a startup festival, and we have grown every year.  It is because of the support from local businesses, merchants, patrons, entertainers, and playtrons that this festival has been a great success.  A special thank you to our volunteers that spend countless hours making this festival what it is.

2011 It was decided that the festival would be moved to warmer weather to accomodate many for various reasons. The festival was a great success and paid tribute to our American Soldiers and celebrated the 4th of July on the faire grounds. I believe this was a great idea to move the festival up to the summer months so that people can schedule their vacations and make it possible to camp at area camp grounds, come to the several other festivals in the area and take in a bit of the historic past in the land of Van Kleve back in the Grainger woods  Put you requests in for your vacation so you too can enjoy the weekend in the woods!
