The Michigan Walk of Fame, styled on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, will honor Michigan residents, past or present, who have made significant contributions to the state or nation.

Located along central Lansing's Washington Square, it aims to be the first comprehensive Walk of Fame in the nation to honor the contributions of its residents on a statewide basis. Each year nominations are accepted by people from around the state and nation.
