The Imlay City Chamber of Commerce Busker Fest Auction is coming up on Saturday, April 6, at Castle Creek Golf Course. The doors open at 5 p.m. 

Please join us for this great event. It will be a really fun evening with our auctioneers, Brian Rowley and Ron Krakowski. They are both very funny with zingers flying while they auction off great stuff such as a golf package for four from Venture Global worth $2,750, cool electronics, tickets to great events, and awesome gift baskets from lots of local businesses. 

The proceeds from the auction support Imlay City’s Busker Fest. Although busker festivals are well known on the east and west coasts of the U.S., and in Canada, our Busker Fest is the only one in Michigan. You have the opportunity to enjoy a truly unique event, right here in Imlay City. Mark your calendar (or record it on your phone) for June 14 and 15. We will once again have entertainers who are magicians, acrobats, jugglers, balloon twisters, fire swallowers, and lots more. The buskers will be coming from all over to entertain you—including from Colorado, Texas, New York, Michigan and Canada. Of course we will also have the food trucks, the pet parade, craft vendors, pie, pickles, children’s activities, the beer tent, music, a talent competition, “Tomorrow’s Buskers,” and don’t forget the parade on Saturday night. 

There is no cost to attend the auction but we hope you bid, often, on all of the great packages and items! There will be food and drinks for purchase. Bring your big vehicle to haul home all of your treasures. (Two years ago my husband and I were the successful bidders on a kayak—we were glad we brought the truck!). 

See you there!
