Fayette Heritage Day

August 8, 2015

Fayette Heritage Day

Fayette Heritage DayEnjoy 19th-century music, food, crafts demonstrations and games (like the sack race shown here), as Fayette celebrates its heyday as a bustling iron-smelting company town during Fayette Heritage Day.

Watch the national pastime at Fayette’s original baseball field. The Fayette team takes on park visitors (ages 13 and up) in a game of vintage “base ball,” using 1860s rules; no gloves, no swearing, and a bell rings for each run scored.

This event is free of charge.

Fayette Historic Townsite is part of the Michigan Historical Museum System.  It is located within Fayette Historic State Park; a Recreation Passport is required for park entry.
