State Fair Smaller than Original, but Owners Expect Higher Attendance than 2014

The Michigan State Fair returns to the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi this weekend. This is the third year of the fair since it was revived as a privately-owned venture in 2013, with Fifth Third Bank as its main sponsor. The company that runs the event bought several acres of land around the venue this year. Executive Director Steve Masters tells WDET’s Pat Batcheller that means weekend’s fair will be bigger than last year’s. Click on the audio player to hear the conversation.
