It’s officially fair season and The English Inn is conveniently located between two of the state’s finest: Eaton County Fair 2019 (July 8-13) and The 165th annual Ingham County Fair (July 29 – August 3, 2019).
Both fairs are less than 20 minutes away from our Lansing area inn, restaurant, and pub, The English Inn.
County fairs are an excellent way to spend a summer evening. The noise and lights of the midway, the smell of popcorn and cotton candy, laughter, calliope music, and good, old-fashioned fun.
Our location along the Grand River in Eaton Rapids puts us in the unique position of being just minutes from two excellent and time honored fairs. Both the Eaton and Ingham County Fair are worth your time.
And with The English Inn’s fine lodging and dining so close by, there is absolutely you miss it?

The annual fair brings folks from all over and plays an important role in the community. The Fair Board works very closely throughout the year with area 4-H Clubs so that they can display and earn recognition for their work at the Fair.
Though 165 years old, the Ingham County Fair offers something for everyone. Exciting grandstand events, hundreds of exhibits, a carnival midway, and daily special events. This year’s grandstand will host barrel racing, demolition derbies, truck and tractor pulls, and a super cross.
