The Cultural & Community (C&C) Stage at the Michigan State Fair seeks performers in multiple areas of entertainment! Talented dancers, singers, storytellers and others who represent and celebrate the rich cultural diversity of Michigan can apply from early-January through mid-July each year by clicking on the link below. If your organization includes performers who would be interested in showcasing their talents on the C&C Stage, and who would choose to partner with us in our commitment to community, family fun and charitable giving by essentially volunteering their time to be part of the Fair and share their performance abilities with the community (C&C performers have the opportunity to sell their merchandise, but otherwise receive only entry, parking and a certificate declaring their participation at the Fair) we would enjoy hearing from you!

The Michigan State Fair is fast approaching! There are many new and expanded attractions planned for the Fair this year, in addition to beloved old favorites…The state of Michigan is historically a rich melting pot of diverse cultures, ethnicities and traditions from across the globe; the mission of this stage is to celebrate the wealth of our diversity with a broad audience.
