Special Events and Films

The City Manager approves all special event permits after the application process is complete.  Major annual events are a huge part of Ypsilanti, and are a big reason why visitors keep on coming back for more – from cruise nights and music festivals to art shows and air shows. Ypsilanti is home to Michigan ElvisFest, Michigan Brewer’s Guild Summer Beer Fest, The Color Run Michigan Eastside, Camaro Superfest, the Michigan Firehouse Museum Fire Truck Muster, the Michigan Vintage Volkswagen car show… and more!  Click here to learn more about planning a Special Event in Ypsilanti.
