Due to COVID, events in 2020 and the first part of 2021 were cancelled. We are looking forward to bringing back our usual events perhaps by Fall 2021. Check back soon!

The village of Pinckney is the home to many spectacular events throughout the year.  Most events are organized by volunteers or volunteer organizations.  The village does not do planning and preparation for these events and therefore may not have the most current information available.
