Ethnic Heritage Festival.

Celebrate the Cultures of

West Michigan.

February 3, 2018

 The 12th Annual Ethnic Heritage Festival, hosted by the Grand Rapids Public Museum, is a celebration of the history, culture and impact Newcomers have made on the West Michigan community. This daylong event showcases music, dance, crafts and food represented by the various ethnic groups active in West Michigan. Celebrate the cultural traditions that shaped the rich and vibrant community we share today.

Spend time in two of the Museum’s exhibitions, Newcomers: People of This Place which highlights the ethnic groups that have settled the Grand Rapids area and Anishinabek: People of This Place which focuses the Native American culture and history in the region.
