It’s the last big hurrah of summer – and Grand Rapids knows how to make it memorable. Take advantage of the long weekend to squeeze out a few more rounds of golf, miles on the trail and days at the beach, then hit our restaurant, craft beverage and nightlife circuits to extend your fun.

Most local attractions are open on Labor Day and throughout the weekend, as are shopping and live music venues. The culmination of the weekend is the annual West Michigan Labor Fest, which celebrates the local labor force with live music, food trucks, activities for children and families, and more.

Think of Labor Day weekend in Grand Rapids as one giant end-of-summer party  – and you’re invited. Check back here as September draws closer for a full list of Labor Day attractions and events.
