Unspoiled, Timeless & True...Say "the cottage" to almost any Michigander and memories rush forward like waves: the screech of gulls, or the squeal of old oarlocks; falling asleep to the rhythm of the surf, or waking to a chorus of frogs; sand in the sheets, or fish scales in the sink. Mostly, though, they're memories of family, because here in the Great Lake State the cottage is a tradition that's handed down from one generation to the next.
The strongest Home & Garden show in the Mid-Michigan area fills the MSU Pavilion on the campus of Michigan State University. Incredible gardens, extensive landscaping projects, a Standard Flower Show and four free seminar stages surround hundreds of exhibits featuring construction, remodeling, kitchens & baths, retail garden centers, pools and spas and home services.
Michigan's finest tradition for the avid fisherman, hunter or outdoor loving family! Exhibitors will be at the show with the latest in outdoor gear, travel information and fishing boats. The features are famous: World Class Taxidermy, Antique Lures, Trout Pond, Hawg Trough, Woodcarvers, Pellet Range, Fishing Simulator, Rock Wall and Fly Casting Instruction. Nearly 100 fishing and hunting seminars will be held on 5 stages, including "Lake Ultimate," the 110,000 gallon indoor lake. Michigan sportsmen never miss it!
A West Michigan tradition! In our 74th year, the Grand Rapids Boat Show is launching into an era where we will be showing our broadest array of power boats ever...especially for the Great Lakes! Besides Motor Yachts and Cruisers we have attracted Great Lakes Catamarans, Tugs, and Trawlers. The array of runabouts, fishing boats, ski and wakeboard inboards, pontoons and deckboats is as broad as ever. As we all see technology advancing around us, boaters, you need to see all of the advancements in boats...hull designs, power systems and all the creature comforts. Boaters, this is your Show!
