Grand Rapids Festival Of The Arts is a long standing tradition in this city. It brings out huge crowds of people, rain or shine, to check out the art, listen to the music, and of course, eat the food. This year's Festival is this coming weekend, June 3rd through the 5th!
The Festival provides entertainment and art for all ages. You can peruse the art in the art tents, check out the Regional Art displayed at the GRAM (for FREE), and check out all of the stages for dozens of different performers. The kids can take part in the Kids' Paint In, Chalk The Walk, Face painting and a myriad of other kids' activities.
