“In 2019, our office took back the management and promotion of Marshall’s Cruise at the Fountain, after two years of subpar results from an outside promoter,” Fairgrounds General Manager Jen Rice explained.  “In 2020, we reassembled the previous cruise committee, including several individuals who were involved in the early 2000’s when Marshall was home to one of the biggest car shows in Michigan.  After COVID hit last year, our big plans were derailed, we attempted to postpone the show to Labor Day, but that couldn’t happen either.  The committee has already met twice to plan our 2021 event, and we look forward to welcoming car show enthusiasts from far and wide back to our beautiful city and historic fairgrounds.”

Daily gate admission is $5 per person (kids 10 & under free)
