West Michigan Tourist Association

Downtown Market, Grand Rapids

West Michigan grows and manufactures countless products. And we celebrate them with countless festivals honoring the diversity of our commerce and the bounty of our land. Many cultures find homes here. We celebrate their traditions with festivals and special events. Danish, Scottish, Irish, Polish, African and Native American, Hispanic, Dutch, German and more: we revel in our heritage.

We celebrate our seasons for no better reason than our appreciation of them. We applaud the gifts of greatness from artists around the world in dozens of venues for the performing arts. There’s nothing we like more than a race well won or a game well played. Sometimes we participate: sometimes we cheer from the stands. We celebrate our incomparable natural resources and the many ways we enjoy them -- for enterprise and for pure joy. Come celebrate with us! We’re West Michigan at play. And you’re invited.
