About Spree Festival

The Spree Festival, also known as the Livonia Spree, is a popular annual event that takes place in Livonia, Michigan. This community event usually happens in late June and is organized to coincide with the city’s anniversary celebration. It’s a week-long festival filled with fun activities like carnival rides, games, fireworks, live music, and various food stalls.

While the precise origin of the name “Spree” is not documented, it seems to have been chosen to reflect the festival’s spirit of merriment and revelry. The term ‘spree’ often refers to a period of unrestrained activity or indulgence in something, such as a shopping spree or a spending spree. In the case of the Livonia Spree, it represents a week of unrestricted fun and celebration for the community.


Watering Delights and Heart-Racing Thrills

Imagine walking amidst rows of stalls, each filled with the delicious aroma of hot, savory food, the air filled with laughter and cheer, as children and adults alike revel in the festive atmosphere. The Spree Festival offers a diverse array of food and drink options that cater to every palate, ranging from classic American comfort food to unique, local culinary delights.

Carnival rides tower overhead, creating a skyline of bright, colorful structures. Thrill-seekers of all ages will find joy in the adrenaline-pumping rides, while those seeking more gentle excitement can enjoy traditional carnival games. Regardless of age, the Spree Festival offers fun for everyone.


Kid-Friendly Attractions and Activities

Families are a central part of the Spree Festival. With an area dedicated to kid-friendly activities, the little ones can enjoy face painting, magic shows, and a variety of interactive games. Parents can relax knowing their children are having fun in a safe and engaging environment.


The Grand Finale: A Fireworks Extravaganza

The highlight of the Spree Festival, and the event that truly sets it apart, is the highly anticipated Fireworks Show. On the night of Sunday, June 25, the sky above Livonia will erupt in a riot of colors as the Fireworks Extravaganza takes center stage. Considered the best in the region, this pyrotechnic spectacle is the perfect way to wrap up a week of excitement and celebration.

Make the Spree Festival part of your summer tradition. Come to experience the food, the games, the community, and stay for the grand fireworks show. This is not just a festival—it’s a celebration of Livonia’s spirit, where every smile is a testament to the joy this event brings to the city. See you there!
