Berkley Days started in 1926. It was originally a celebration for the completion of Coolidge Highway.
More than 90 years later, we are still celebrating this amazing city. Although it was held at different times over the course of nearly a century, Berkley Days is now held the weekend of Mother's Day, and for many, signals the end of the school year and the beginning of summer.
The Berkley Days Association is comprised of representatives from various community service and non-profit organizations and operates in kind with the city of Berkley. Berkley Days provides an opportunity for those community groups to raise funds and awareness for their organization. Berkley Days has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.
Berkley Days has something for everyone. The Midway offers thrills, fun and excitement with rides and games for all ages. Fair food is always a fan favorite. Indulge your taste buds with elephant ears, cotton candy, corn dogs, refreshments and so much more.
The Berkley Days Festival of Races 5k/10k/1 mile is the second longest running race in Michigan. It is held on Saturday morning of Berkley Days.
