June 5th, 6th and 7th, 2009!
This year Festival celebrates its 40th anniversary in Grand Rapids – so you won’t want to miss this one.
Festival is the largest all-volunteer arts event in the nation! It’s a three-day arts celebration, always held the first full weekend in June in downtown Grand Rapids.
It encompasses almost all of downtown Grand Rapids with six performance stages; lots and lots of food booths offering ethnic delights of all kinds; singers, dancers, thespians, visual artists, and performers from all over West Michigan; more than 20,000 hard-working volunteers; and over half a million people in attendance.

I will be offering greeting cards, boxed gift card sets, matted prints in a variety of sizes and new framed pieces. Check back – I will make a few more posts related to this event as the date draws near.
VOLUNTEERS for my booth are ALWAYS welcome! It takes a good long week of preparations in order to make Festival happen. I’m putting out my annual call for booth volunteers or help packaging products. If you think you can lend a couple of hours, please contact me for details. “Team Niedzwiecki” always has lots of fun each year…
Be sure to stop by and say hello – and be sure you bring an extra shish-ka-bob with you…
