Dexter Community Guide

Cooling temperatures and leaves changing colors are traditional harbingers of fall—and in Dexter, so is Apple Daze. The apple-centric downtown event has been an October tradition for more than fifty years. Residents and visitors alike eagerly await autumn visits to Dexter Cider Mill, Michigan’s oldest cider mill, and the food, crafts, and hayrides at the Webster Fall Festival. Light Up Dexter, a holiday parade, and the sculptures of the annual Ice Fest are all part of Dexter’s winter fun. For hardy Dexterites who embrace a brisk Michigan winter, Hudson Mills Metropark and Pinckney State Recreation Area offer landscapes made for cross-country skiing.
