Ovid, Michigan is a city that lies in both Clinton County and Shiawassee County. The city sits almost right in the middle of St. Johns and Owosso, and is about 30 minutes northeast of Lansing. Ovid has a population of around 1,600 people and an area of 0.92 square miles. Though this town is small, there are a large number of reason to love Ovid.

Ovid is home to some large operations like the Michigan Milk Producers Association and Great Lakes Hybrids, and also has plenty of small local shops that warm your heart with the small-town feel. Sleepy Hollow State Park and Lake Ovid are both located just south of the city, which provide even more ways for visitors and residents of all ages to have fun.

Ovid-Elsie Area Schools provides a comprehensive learning experience to almost 1,750 students from both Ovid and Elsie, and strives to personalize their education to meet the needs of each student. The district has two elementary schools, one middle school, one high school, an alternative high school, and recently partnered with Baker College to create an early college program.

In the late 1800s and early 1900s, Schafield and Danforth was a well-known business in Ovid that manufactured carriages. Ovid Carriage Days  is an annual festival that takes place every September to celebrate the industry and its heritage. The festival has plenty to do including games, arts and crafts, local vendors, a 5K run-walk, and more!
