Oceana County Fairgrounds<br />

Parades, Markets and More!

The City of Hart and the many hardworking volunteers and organizations that collaborate to provide the many parades, events, and festivals each year are working very hard to ensure that there is a minimal impact on these important community social gatherings. With that in mind, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting some of our events as we begin the spring season, and we will be updating this page regularly with additional information. We will work to reschedule as many events as possible, but there may situations where that is not possible; please be patient and understand that these are extraordinary times.

You'll find fun events for the whole family in the City of Hart. Check out our extensive array of community events and happenings. Visit our list of area Facebook pages to see more. Dates of events will be posted as they become available for the coming year!
