Empire, Michigan 49630
If you love asparagus … you’ll love the northwest part of Michigan’s mitten. The sandy soil and climate in these parts makes it the perfect place to grow this delectable vegetable. But, if you love it so much you wanna kick up your heels and celebrate it … the Annul Empire Asparagus Festival is exactly where you need to be. This tiny town has a big heart … a big personality … and is big on this crunchy green vegetable.
