Train Depot Albion Michigan
Legend of Fall on the River of Time Mural, Albion, Michigan

If there is one day in the year to visit Albion, Michigan and get the Albion experience, it is the Saturday of the Festival of the Forks.

The Festival happens the third full weekend in September. The purpose of the festival is “To celebrate the historic heritage and rich diversity of Albion Michigan.” Albion was settled near the Forks of the Kalamazoo River, and the area has historically referred to as “The Forks.”

The Forks of the River are captured in banners downtown and the symbol of the Y represents Albion’s Unity and Diversity. There is usually a morning parade on the day of the Festival of the Forks, featuring area bands, grade school children, politicians, fire trucks and many other family favorites such as the Shriners with their little cars. After the parade, the vendors have booths on Superior Street, and in the Farmer’s Market area (Stoffer Plaza) between Superior Street and the Kalamazoo River.

There is a variety of ethnic foods available, and live music from several venues throughout the day. This art also shows the Bohm Theatre, Bohm II, Labor Day Albion River Walk, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and other river activities, including the Albion River Trail, that is a part of several larger hiking trails.

This view of summer in Albion, including the bandshell, is part of a 56-foot long mural in the drive-thru of former Huntington Bank in downtown Albion.

The mural is called the Albion “River of Time” because it shows a linear scene depicting things happening in all four seasons in Albion, along with the river, brick streets, river trail, and parks.
