Schedule of Events & Map

Join us August 11-13 this year for Stanton Old Fashioned Days! Our 2023 schedule is below, followed by our festival map.

FRIDAY STAGE EVENT UPDATES: Due to an unfavorable weather forecast, all Friday evening stage activities will be taking place at Central Montcalm Middle School.

AMUSEMENT UPDATES: Unfortunately, Kaye Bros Amusements cancelled with no notification, but we were able to find 2 last minute bounce house rentals that we were planning to offer to children for free. HOWEVER, the new bounce house rentals had an equipment failure issue. So sorry to disappoint! We’ll try again next year to offer an amusement area.
