The festival is held on the third full weekend of September every year.

This year the celebration will take place on September 14th through the 16th. Since 1967 Albion has been celebrating its ethnic heritage with food and fun. Where did the name come from you ask? It comes from the fact that Albion is where the north and south branches of the Kalamazoo River make a "fork". Things will kick off with a free concert on Thursday night at the newly renovated Bohm Theatre. The show is called Howl-2 Go, which is a traveling version of the famous Howl At The Moon shows in Chicago. There is also The Forks Carnival which goes all 3 days!

Friday will be the Cruise-In Car Show, which goes from 5-9pm in the downtown area.

Saturday is the main event with a parade to kick the festivities off at 10am. Everything else will start up at 11am including the food, vendors, and music along the streets. If you'd like a full list of the events for the Festival of the Forks you can click on the link.
