2017 Battle Creek Field of Flight

June 29, 2016 through July 4, 2017


Skerbeck Entertainment Group Family Carnival - June 29 - July 4

Skerbeck Entertainment Group Carnival, Escanaba, MI

The Battle Creek Field of Flight will be having our ever-popular carnival midway back again this year. Skerbeck Entertainment Group, Inc.  will be operating all 6 days in 2017 - June 29 - July 4th, with an AMAZING array of rides, food and games for Battle Creek's premier annual event.


The 2017 Carnival will be located adjacent to the event grounds. Once on the event grounds, it is FREE to browse around and take in the sights and sounds. At night, the carnival will light up with colorful lights, truly some of the most beautiful in the carnival industry.

The best part about Skerbeck Entertainment Group returning is their endless rotation of rides. Running different traveling packs, some rides will be different than what was on-site the last two year. So make sure you come on out and try out what we didn't have on-hand previously.

Skerbeck Entertainment Group also uses a high-tech ticketing system, making it easier for you to get your tickets before hand and to save some additional money. We guarantee deep discounts on daily all-day ride wristbands as well as mega packs.


Skerbeck Carnival - Milligan WheelSkerbeck Entertainment Group, Inc., based in Escanaba, Michigan, will return as the midway provider for Battle Creek’s premier annual festival, occurring at the W.K. Kellogg Airport in Battle Creek from June 29 - July 4, 2017.

According to Sonja Skerbeck, Marketing Director for Skerbeck Entertainment Group, “We had a great run at the festival in 2016.  Customers really responded to the quality of our midway, and especially to the deep discounts we provided with our online advanced sale promotion.  Customers seem to really appreciate the ability to purchase ahead of the festival using their credit card.  It allows families to reserve cash for the day they attend and spend it on other fun activities.  Redemption for wristbands is speedy with our bar-code scanning system at the ticket boxes, and that gets the fun started faster than ever before.”Skerbeck Carnival - Carousel Ride

 Other features of the family-friendly midway will include customer amenities such as ATMs, hand-washing stations, misting fans, and plenty of covered seating.
