“Exceeded expectations” is how Suburban Collection Showplace President Blair Bowman described the first Great Lakes State Fair, which took place this past weekend.
“It was incredible,” Bowman said of the event. “The question of whether or not we would get support was answered with a resounding ‘yes.' The state fair has found a home in Novi.”
Held in Detroit for more than 150 years, the Michigan State Fair ended in 2009 because of financial challenges. However, it came back to life at the Suburban Collection Showplace on Grand River Avenue in a scene that included a circus, a midway, an entertainment stage and livestock exhibition areas that were set up on the complex's more than 80 acres.

Bowman was happy to hear positive reviews of his facilities. One agricultural exhibitor said it was the cleanest, nicest open barn they had seen, Bowman said.
