Festival of the Arts
In 1970 Festival of the Arts was born—a three-day arts celebration in downtown Grand Rapids. The event presents local bands, choirs, rock and folk, country, blues, jazz, techno and classical music, poetry, dance, theater arts and storytelling. Since that time the festival has grown to be its own non-profit organization, encompassing almost all of downtown Grand Rapids with six performance stages featuring singers, dancers, thespians, visual artists, and performers from all over West Michigan, food booths offering ethnic delights of all kinds. The festival is an all-volunteer arts event run by more than 20,000 hard-working volunteers; and over half a million people in attendance.
