The Battle Creek Cereal Festival is an event that celebrates the City of Battle Creek and features the World’s Longest Breakfast Table, and new events that celebrate a community proud of its rich and varied past. The event will include a parade, concerts, and healthy living activities, events that help provide food for the food banks and information tents that will offer an interesting array of heritage to our visitors.

Post and W. K. Kellogg.
