Community Events

The City of East Lansing produces and sponsors more than 50 community events a year. The goal of the Community Events program is to enhance the quality of life in East Lansing by providing a variety of festivals and events for community members of all ages.

Many of the events conveniently take place in the heart of downtown East Lansing and are FREE!

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several of the City of East Lansing's 2020 community events and festivals have been canceled in the interest of community health and safety. Visit the individual event webpages to learn more about the current status of each event (updates will continue to be made into the fall and winter).

The East Lansing Farmers Market is open for its 2020 season, with market days taking place every Sunday from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Valley Court Park, 280 Valley Court, through the end of October. Masks are required and other customers are encouraged to review the other 2020 guidelines prior to attending.
