Join the Michigan Great Lakes International Family

The Michigan Great Lakes Draft Horse Show and Pull is already preparing for the FORTY THIRD Year of showcasing the Heavy Horse Industry here in Michigan. This never would have been possible without the support of Sponsors, Volunteers and Fans. This Show is largely funded by Commercial and Private Sponsors. Exhibitors, Spectators and Vendors come from all over the United States and Canada, including visitors from England, Australia, France and Scotland! Agri-Tourism is a booming industry.

The Michigan Great Lakes International has a local economic impact of approximately $1.3 million each year and is the second largest convention or tradeshow in Mid-Michigan and the largest horse show in the state of Michigan.

As a Sponsor, your investment in this great show will yield years of returns as your business, products and/or services will be showcased and advertised to thousands of people during this 4-day event. Another benefit of being a Sponsor is the opportunity to place an ad in our show program. The program is viewed by most spectators and all exhibitors. The size of your ad will of course depend on your level of sponsorship.

If you are considering a Sponsorship we would like to welcome you to the Michigan Great Lakes International Draft Horse Show and Pull Family. The event is October 17-20, 2019 at the spacious Pavilion on the Grounds of Michigan State University.

If you’d like to become an MGLI sponsor, there are several levels available. Please contact one of our members in the evening.
