Nestled on the banks of the Kalamazoo River, the charming and historic town of Allegan offers an inland adventure to those visiting West Michigan.
Allegan is home to the Old Iron Bridge, constructed in 1886, and celebrates its importance to the town with the annual Bridgefest celebration every June. Enjoy yourself on the picturesque Riverfront Park with a 100-person splash pad, a 20-foot outdoor fireplace, and a stage that features regular entertainment. Wander into the heart of the downtown to find specialty stores and secondhand shops, a selection of bars and restaurants, three breweries, and a coffeehouse.
Make Allegan a destination when you visit the Regent Theatre, a historic one-screen movie theater that shows first-run and limited-time movies seven days a week. The Allegan County Fairgrounds has been home to the one of the largest county fairs in the State of Michigan since 1852, and named the most popular county fair in Michigan by USA Today. Additionally, on the last Sunday in the months of May through September, the fairgrounds turn into a 115-acre antique market featuring over 400 exhibitors, making it Michigan’s largest antique show.
Whet your appetite for adventure by taking on the Allegan Mountain Bike & Hiking Trail, grinding a rail at the skate park or tossing discs at the disc golf course at Jaycee Park. Try your swing at the Pickle Ball Courts, explore the sprawling Allegan State Game Area, canoe or kayak the Kalamazoo, or visit the indoor ropes course located at Allegan Event.
In Allegan, there is always something to do.
