Red Flannel Festival

October 5, 2019 - Downtown Cedar Springs

The Red Flannel Festival was founded in 1939 and celebrates the old fashioned "union suit" long, red flannel underwear! It is the 16th oldest Festival in the State of Michigan. In Red Flannel Town, over two weekends, there are several events, Arts & Craft Show, Queen Scholarship Pageant, Grand Parade, Car Show, Children's Parade, Horseshoe Throwing Contest, Lumberjack Supper, Rotary Chicken BBQ and MUCH, MUCH more! Visit our Facebook page for more info!

The first Red Flannel Day was held Nov. 11, 1939 and Carleton Cady wrote in that issue of the Grand Rapids Press:
“Lurid lingerie adorned the limbs of nearly every citizen. Scarlet certificates of knighthood were issued to members of the Order of Knights of the Red Flannel Drawers, who proudly wore the badge, which, in miniature, reproduced the article that on winter  Monday’s flies from Cedar Springs’ clotheslines.”

Their password was “itch”. Dr. C. W. Brayman, James H. Cook and Jack Pollock were some of the first members in good standing, crowning the first Red Flannel Queen, Maxine Smith.
