SALINE, MI — Now that August has begun, Saline’s Summerfest is approaching and expects to draw in around 1,000 people.

The two-day event, expected to bring 1,000 people to the city, takes place Aug. 12-13 in downtown Saline. It offers a variety of events, including live music, food vendors, car shows and more.

“For better than 40 years this has just been a festival in the city of Saline geared toward just bringing the community together,” said Cindy Sobotta, Summerfest’s chairperson of sponsor recruitment.

Beer tents and food vendors will kick off the festival at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12, in a parking lot off South Ann Arbor Street. Vendors include the Kiwanis Club of Saline, Bone Heads BBQ, Lions Club and Krazy Jim’s Blimpy Burger.

Different live performances also are scheduled in the same parking lot — including music by FiftyAmpFuse from 8 to 11 p.m.

Those looking for a family-friendly activity can watch the movie, “Sing 2,” at 9 p.m. at Henne Field, 114 E. Bennett St. Sobotta recommends those who attend bring their own foldable chairs.

The Summerfest’s 5K, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. begins activities on Saturday, Aug. 13. The run starts and finishes at Saline City Hall, 100 North Harris St.

Those who don’t want to participate in-person can sign up to virtually participate wherever they are. To learn more or to register, visit the event’s webpage.

A three-on-three soccer tournament also is scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, where teams of up to five players can compete at Henne Field. A sand volleyball tournament also is set for 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Saline Recreation Center, 1866 Woodland Drive.

Those interested in learning more or signing up for either tournament can visit the events’ webpage.

The festival will also have a car show from 9: a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. The show is open to all makes, models and years of cars and is free for those interested. There will be random prize drawings for participants and a 50/50 raffle to support Saline Area Social Services.

Live performances from DJ Doug Gilson and Kung Fu Diesel will also take place during the car show.

Other events on Saturday include an arts and craft show, the Miss. Saline Pageant, other live musical performances, a teen block party and an electric vehicle show from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Quantum Signal Parking Lot on East McKay Street.

“If you have any questions about electric cars or you’re thinking about buying an electric car, that’s probably one of the things that you would want to seek out,” Sobotta said.

Summerfest is a nonprofit organization made up entirely of community volunteers, and Sobotta said welcomes new volunteers. Those interested in volunteering at Summerfest can reach out through the event’s Facebook page.
