At Lansing Made , we believe that Metro Lansing is as cool as I. C. E ., with Ingham, Clinton and Eaton counties residents making up of a diverse group of movers and shakers. We highlight the positive events, places and faces in the community that incorporates a wide swath of mid-Michigan, from Grand Ledge in the west to Williamston in the east, and from Saint Johns in the north to Mason in the south. So we decided to create an event to highlight just how awesome it is to live here.

The first-ever Lansing Made 517 Day will feature food vendors, musicians, artist, interactive exhibits, informational booths, cool cars … and maybe a superhero or two. Then, at 5:17 p.m., we plan to take a community picture featuring all attendees as well as local legislative, business and cultural leaders.

Attendees are encouraged to walk, pedal or paddle their way to the Lansing City Market, where the event will be held. To help out, River Town Adventures will offer kayak rides from Cherry Hill Park, just south of downtown, and JoyRide Pedal Tours will offer pedal rides for up to 15 people at a me from Lansing Brewing Co. and R.E. Olds Museum parking lots. Musical performers include singer songwriter Cindy McElroy; classic rock song master Mark Grinnell and Big Will and friends. Performance arst Gary Vaughn, under the name Dance Central , will also provide entertainment. Local artists will be showcasing their wares, with some actually working on pieces at the event. Food vendors will feature burgers, pizza, locally sourced frozen drinks, coffee, smoked BBQ, cupcakes, doughnuts and paella.
