About Scene Magazine


Scene Magazine, established in 1977, is recognized as the glossy “City Magazine” that has served the people who live and work in the Battle Creek / Marshall area of Southwest Michigan. Scene Magazine is a state-of-the-art, targeted marketing vehicle with a positive point of view that can really make things happen for advertisers. Scene is published twelve times per year. Scene is distributed free through our advertisers, area professional offices, and key points of interest in the Battle Creek, Springfield, Urbandale and Marshall area.

Scene’s high quality production values, fabulous cover designs, and in-depth coverage of one broadly significant topic per issue – like health or education – makes it a must-read for adults who care about this community. You’ll likely find a copy proudly displayed in lobbies, in waiting rooms, and on coffee tables, all over town. It is estimated that each copy is read by ten different people, on average, each month. We understand the power of being completely local in focus. Scene Magazine has earned the trust of our readers; that trust extends to our advertisers.

Scene Magazine serves as a positive voice for the greater Battle Creek, Marshall, Springfield, and Urbandale area as we share all that our community has to offer. We seek to recognize the positive impact of area leaders including individuals, organizations, and businesses. Each issue of Scene Magazine has a reason to become someone’s favorite. 

Scene is also hand delivered, for free distribution to the general public, to over 100 locations throughout our market area. We want it out there, working – where people shop and dine.
