Unity & Diversity banners


Festival of the Forks celebrates Albion’s Unity & Diversity.

The theme is symbolized by the forks of a river. The river is one body of water, and yet there are forks in the river.   The forks of the Kalamazoo River are near the bridge in Victory Park.

Albion is a diverse community. We have a wide variety of talents and viewpoints, but everyone agrees that we all want what is best for our young people in Albion.

One day of the year we all come together to walk on our historic brick main street and celebrate our unity & diversity. Saturday, September 17th, 2016 is the 50th anniversary of the Festival of the Forks.  Albion was founded by the forks of the Kalamazoo River.
Come to Albion, enjoy Friday’s cruise-in, Saturday’s parade, music, ethnic foods, arts and crafts. See what is most special about Albion – our people!
