The Riverfront Family Festival takes place on Sunday October 14th Otsego. This is a fun event for the whole family, come out on the 14th for cider, caramel apples, games for kids, pumpkin painting, and more! Our Vision is to maintain a vibrant, welcoming downtown area with opportunities for all ages, featuring a diverse business mix. Our pedestrian friendly downtown & riverfront will be a destination for shopping, community events and festivals. Our Mission is to facilitate the continued growth and revitalization of Otsego’s vibrant downtown district through economic development & community empowerment.
Otsego is proud to be a member of the Michigan Main Street family. After a lengthy and competitive process, Otsego was selected in March 2013 by the Michigan Main Street Center as a Select Level Main Street Community. Currently, there are 18 Main Street communities in the state.As a branch of the City of Otsego, the program is funded primarily through a tax capture of the DDA district, however, private donations are essential to the success of the program. Events and promotions also contribute to funding needs.
