Of course there are the big events, Arts, Beats and Eats in Royal Oak, The Michigan State Fair in Novi and The Detroit International Jazz Festival in Downtown Detroit, but there are a lot of smaller events happening as well.

Starting with the Saline Community Fair, the event features a midway with carnival rides, food, kids activities and more. The fair is going on now through Labor Day at the Saline Fairgrounds.

If you’re in the mood for some jazz, check out the John E. Lawrence Summer Jazz Concert in Ypsilanti. Tonight is the final performance for the free jazz series and features Grammy-Award winning keyboardist Jeff Lorber Fusion. The concert starts at 7pm at Ford Lake Park.
