Dynamic Variation:

World of Winter Festival

January - February

Downtown Grand Rapids transforms into a dazzling winter wonderland every January and February. This year’s World of Winter Festival is bigger and better than ever, as the city offers more things to see and do outdoors, where visitors can better socially distance.

See unique interactive art installations, look for 80+ ice sculptures – Batman, Wonder Woman, Yoda and more –spread out across downtown or take a walking tour highlighting local Black History or the Heartside neighborhood.

All programming and activities are FREE and geared for both families and adults. Check back in December for more updated information about World of Winter 2023.
