What Is World of Winter?

The World of Winter Festival takes advantage of Michigan’s cold climate to provide interesting ways for people to experience and enjoy the season. This festival aspires to make Grand Rapids a more active winter city - which makes Grand Rapids a more active year-round city. All programming and activities are FREE, socially-distanced for these pandemic times, and geared for both families and adults. World of Winter is organized by Downtown Grand Rapids Inc., the City of Grand Rapids, and numerous community partners.

According to Fox17 the Grand Rapids Food Truck Association and Downtown Grand Rapids Inc are helping coordinate food trucks for the World of Winter Festival.

Lauren D’Angelo, Vice President of the Grand Rapids Food Truck Association said

“Seeing this many food trucks wanting to participate in winter events is awesome! Food trucks don’t have to operate for a season, they can operate in Michigan year-round. This is a great opportunity for people to get out this winter, try out some newer food trucks or grab something from an old favorite. DGRI puts on a great event with the World of Winter Festival and the food truck community is excited to be part of it”
