    Community Events Calendar

    The Grand Rapids community continues to support area businesses and organizations through fund raising events, large celebrations and other community focused events. The purpose of this calendar is to provide community organizations a collective community calendar of these events in an effort to reduce over scheduling a day and assist in date selections so that attending all community events is possible by city, county and state officials, local business leaders and other community advocates. 

    If you have an event that you would like to have listed, please submit your event to our calendar. Even private, by invite only events are welcome and will be communicated likewise on the event listing. These events can be shared only here or in addition to the Experience Grand Rapids Calendar of Events area.
