Thomas Township

The Thomas Township “Shields Summer Festival” takes place each summer at the club-owned property at 605 South Miller Road.

The Shields Summer Festival is running from Thursday, June 22nd through Sunday, June 25th, 2017!  Activities anticipated at the 2017 festival will include live entertainment, beer tent, food, bingo and much more with games and amusement rides.

Throughout the Thomas Township area other events taking place as part of the festival include softball tournaments and the township-wide “Trash & Treasures” garage and rummage sales (which had just shy of 120 participants both residential and business in 2016). For information on the “Trash & Treasures” sale or any festival events you can contact the Thomas Township office at (989) 781-0150, email to

On the Saturday of the festival, the Lions Club sponsors a parade at 11 a.m. that makes its way down Gratiot Road.  Area businesses and organizations participate in the themed event to make it one of the largest in the area.  To view the parade, make sure you set-up on the south side of Gratiot because the parade will run down the two southernmost lanes.

For additional festival information, please contact Roger Price at (989) 213-6867.  If you are interested in participating in the parade or want more details about it, please contact Wayne Engel at (989) 301-0022.
