Easy way to learn about special event changes
Posted on 11/19/2019
Kids ride a lit bus during a Holiday Lighted Parade.The City shares news of community-based special events on social media, City News and occasionally on our website and in Northville Matters. However, when something occurs that changes the time, location or specifics of the event, your best source of information is directly from the event planner. This may be a local nonprofit, the Downtown Development Authority (DDA), the Chamber of Commerce, Mill Race Village, Maybury Farm, or another host organization.

The City Council must approve special events held in the City, and event promoters are required to complete an application and obtain a permit. But we don’t manage the communications aspect of the special event before, during or after it occurs. What we will do is post the method of communication that the event planner plans to use to announce changes and updates to the event. This could be social media (typically Facebook), an organization’s website, or a special web link. Often, these online venues include a phone number, instant message feature, or email address.

If you have any questions about the event, simply visit the designated event site of the hosting organization to learn more. For example, this weekend the City will be the location for the Holiday Lighted Parade and Greens Market, both of which are managed by the Northville Chamber of Commerce. These are the online venues to visit:
