Albion Week begins with Mother’s Day, which has roots in Albion, including a Michigan Historic Marker. Albion Week includes a Ride the River Bike Ride on Monday, May 14.  And Spring into Arts in Battle Creek takes place on Friday of that same week.

The Albion French Market takes place the second Saturday of June. Juneteenth celebrations for both Albion and Battle Creek are planned for the Saturday before Father’s Day. The opening of Binder Park Zoo, the Free Museum Day in Marshall featuring all eight of Marshall museums, the Battle Creek Cereal Festival and Prayer Breakfast are some nearby events on the calendar.

The events are conveniently included on the printed General Guide calendars that can be posted to refrigerators as reminders and decoration for spring. There is a banner of the growing season, with icons of the connected communities along I-94 between Battle Creek and Jackson.   The best thing about the General Guide are the Google calendars online with links to official information about each event, and a directory to area calendars for many destinations and organizations. The Google calendars can be synced with personal device calendars for handy access to fun things to do locally.
