"Where the East meets the West with the Best"
The Bay City Poultry Club was founded in 1921 by a group of dedicated poultry enthusiasts in Bay City, Michigan.  For many years the club held its annual "Midwest Roundup" shows in various locations around Michigan, including Bay City, Midland, and Alma.  In 2007 the club changed its name to the Michigan Poultry Fanciers, the show name was changed to "The Fowl Fest" and the show moved to Frankenmuth.  In 2011 the show was moved to Birch Run and from 2011 to 2014 an additional spring show in Alma was added.  In 2021 the fall show moved to Chesaning.

The Fowl Fest is presented annually by Michigan Poultry Fanciers, a tax-exempt, 501(c)(6), non-profit corporation.
The mission of Michigan Poultry Fanciers, is to encourage the exhibition of standard bred poultry by holding an annual poultry show in Michigan – the Fall Fowl Fest.
