It’s time to celebrate Flint & Genesee. 810 Day was created as a day for celebrating the region and the things that make it so beloved. 810 signifies the area code of Flint and the surrounding communities but it has been embraced as a day of love for the city and its culture and community.  

Celebrations of 810 Day in the past have included food, music, and fashion and this year is no different. The festivities will center around Buckham Alley in downtown Flint and will feature several events –  

  • The Taste of 810, is a celebration of foods inspired by the 810 area.  

  • A fashion show along the Water Street walking bridge featuring 14 fashion designers and over 30 models.  

  • Downtown Flint (DTF) sticker giveaways at six locations downtown.  

  • Finally, Social Cycling Flint will have its weekly nighttime bike ride at 9 p.m. for those who want to join them.  

Some of these events are ticketed so you will want to check availability.  

The official 810 Day events aren’t the only ways to celebrate the area as you can make a day of touring the county in honor of it.  

You can head to the beach in Linden at the Linden County Park and get pizza from Calabria’s Village.  

You can make a drive to Flushing and bowl a game at Jack’s Place and then head over to Cops & Robbers for some ice cream afterward.  

You can go to Davison’s Sugarbush Golf Club for a round of golf and then head over to Whitey’s Restaurant for dinner. 

A trip to Fenton offers the popular eatery The Laundry with the promise of sweets from Crust or ice cream from Uncle Ray’s Dairyland.  

Clio has a wonderful walking trail through their city park and Extreme Indoor Kart Racing is nearby. 

The Crossbow Inn in Grand Blanc offers delicious food in a unique environment inspired by medieval themes and Ziggy’s Ice Cream is close enough to walk to for dessert.  

It’s hard to resist Swartz Creek’s Sam’s Italian and their Samoritos or the allure of Goodrich’s Cranberries Café. Beyond the shopping in Flint Township, there is Italia Gardens which offers genuine homemade Italian food and Mott Park would be a great place for a walk afterward.  

Montrose boasts a historic telephone museum worth a look and Genesee Township offers Huckleberry Junction, the area’s only all-ages restaurant with an animatronic band.  

The biggest problem with 810 Day is that it will take more than one day to experience all the great things to do in Flint & Genesee, but it’s a great inspiration to get started.
