Holiday Heritage Faire, Packard Proving Grounds, Black Friday & Saturday (Nov 29 & 30)

The Holiday Heritage Faire is a celebration of Christmas traditions and Michigan-made gift marketplace at the picturesque Packard Proving Grounds Historic Site in Shelby Twp. It will offer a family-friendly and fun alternative to Black Friday frustrations. Enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities, including visits with Santa & Mrs. Claus, historic buildings and vehicle tours, an enhanced lights display with animated light show, Christmas music, marshmallow and chestnut roasting, and kids’ gift craft-making, all included with admission. Michigan artisans and vendors will offer hundreds of handmade gifts and products for sale. Along with these, horse-drawn wagon rides through a lighted tunnel, and delicious holiday treats and drink concessions, are available for purchase. The second annual event will expand to two days, Friday and Saturday, November 29th and 30th, and will be held later in the day to better enjoy the lights. Parking and admission to the decorated grounds and historic buildings is $20 per family/group arriving together in one passenger vehicle. Wagon rides are $5 each. Details, directions, pass purchase and ride reservations are available at
