June 16th has become the 'unofficial' celebration of everything West Michigan, and specifically Grand Rapids, as a nod to the area code 616 for the city and much of the metro area. This year the Grand Rapids Hip Hop Coalition and Grand Stand Pictures are throwing a party to celebrate Grand Rapids on 616 Day.
West Michigan native Josh Sikkema's new film, 'Something In The Clouds', will be a centerpiece of an event at Studio Park in Downtown Grand Rapids. The event, Cultivate Grand Rapids 2021, will take place on June 26th.
It’s the first weekend of LaughFest. There are also exhibits to check out at different museums. There are concerts, the Home & Garden Show, Fish Fries, Hockey, Nature, and a World Record Attempt you can be part of.
