Passport 2 Pittsfield Next Weekend

Each year Pittsfield Township runs the Passport 2 Pittsfield Open House with a chance to visit the different Pittsfield Township facilities. The event is family friendly with the chance to inspect police cars and fire trucks, the Pittsfield Township Farmers Market, and the Box City recycled craft project. See below for more details.

Join us for the Passport 2 Pittsfield Open House on May 4th from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM
Bonus: Visit the pop-up Farmers Market on May 4th from 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM!

For the sixth year, Pittsfield Township will throw open its doors at our public safety, municipal services, parks & recreation, and administration buildings to invite residents to tour each facility and participate in family friendly activities during the Passport-2-Pittsfield (P2P) Event on May 4th.

Residents are invited to tour Township facilities, tour the buildings, participate in fun activities, and learn more about the services that Pittsfield Township offers-including our Farmers Market at this annual open house event.

The doors to Pittsfield Township’s six buildings will open for visitors from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM for a day of fun to discover, explore and create. Pittsfield Township employees will be serving as volunteer greeters and tour guides at each of our facilities. AAATA buses will be available for residents to park in one place and use transit to tour all facilities. Visitors will receive a P2P Passport to chart the afternoon’s FREE activities. Offerings planned include:

Ann Arbor with Kids is your go-to source for Ann Arbor Family Fun. It got its start in an activity list that I was compiling for the playgroup I ran at our church. When my daughter started preschool, the other moms were thrilled to hear about my list. I decided to take the list public in 2009.
