The motto of Lenawee County’s southernmost city on the Michigan-Ohio border is the visitors’ “first step into Pure Michigan.” Morenci is home to the annual Town and Country Festival at Wakefield Park and as of 2017, the home of the National Wiffle Ball League Association tournament (NWLA). This tournament is a three-day event held in mid-June each year. Approximately 16 teams from all over the United States embark on the City of Morenci taking part in pool play on Friday followed by Double elimination games the rest of the weekend to determine the champion.
Every Labor Day, Morenci Chamber of Commerce officials host an annual “bridge walk”, offering the community a light-hearted fundraising alternative to the five-mile Mackinac Bridge walk up north. Participants may walk the 81-foot-long Historic Truss Bridge across Silver Creek.
