Join in the celebrations!
Annual Grand Haven Sand Sculpture Contest
Every season brings an occasion to celebrate in the Grand Haven area. First up in the spring are the Chilly Blues, Lubbers Cup Regatta, and Great Lakes Kite Festival. Summer pops with a premier lineup, including the Spring Lake Heritage Festival, Sand Sculpture Contest, Grand Haven Art Festival, 4th of July Fireworks, Coopersville Summerfest, and the nationally-renowned Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival. Fall is honored with September’s Salmon Festival, Grand Haven Artwalk, GVSU Lakers football games at Lubber's Stadium, and the Famous Pumpkin Train in Coopersville. It may be cold outside, but hearts are warm when the Grand Haven community presents its traditional Jingle Bell Parade to welcome Santa and Mrs. Claus. Attending Winterfest in January is a long standing tradition, as families enjoy activities such as the cardboard sled race and dog pulls.
Join us in celebrating all that makes our area unique and attractive.
