CreekFest Fact Sheet

Why is CreekFest important?

Because Ortonville’s Cool Jewel is Kearsley Creek, a designated trout stream and headwaters to the Flint River and Saginaw Bay.

 How many towns can boast a designated trout stream?


Because Kearsley Creek runs right through our town. The Creek is a living link with Ortonville’s past, and part of our heritage, just as is the Old Mill, which stands on its banks.

BecauseIn addition to Kearsley Creek, Brandon Township has the headwaters of two other rivers: Paint Creek and the Clinton River.

Because Ortonville was honored in 2011 by Main Street Oakland County as its most outstanding event.  Our Creek is a rallying point  to revitalize our downtown.

Events like CreekFest bring the town together and highlight our local businesses.

Because our town has a focal point – The Old Mill and the Creek – unique features that tell us we are home.

Becausewe love our creeks.

The Ortonville DDA/Main Street program proudly presents Ortonville’s ninth annual CreekFest on June 2, 2012, in downtown Ortonville.  CreekFest is an opportunity to celebrate Kearsley Creek, our designated trout stream, and other waterways in the township.

Since 2003, CreekFest has been bringing attention to water quality issues in Brandon Township. The event has been a key element in meeting the Township’s Phase II EPA storm water management requirements.
