Northville & Novi Michigan 4th of July events

Do you have any plans for the 4th of July this year? Sometimes this holiday is hard to plan, and this year it falls on a Wednesday. What do you do with a holiday surrounded by work days? You can make the most of it, or you can celebrate before.

This year, in Novi and Northville, you can do both. Come to the newly expanded Novi Stars and Stripes Fest June 28th - July 1 - the weekend before the 4th of July - and celebrate the actual holiday in downtown Northville at the parade and Mill Race Village events afterward!
