green gala

We’re excited to present the 11th annual Green Gala on August 11th at Richmond Park!

This is Grand Rapids’ Garden Party! An opportunity to spend time with neighbors and leaders who love parks as much as you do! 

This year, we will be highlighting music and food that celebrates the diversity of neighborhoods and residents in our Grand City — all while raising money to ensure Grand Rapids has the nation’s best park system and urban forest canopy leading to what we believe will be the healthiest city in America!

We will also be hosting a hot air balloon (you read that right!) to give Gala Goers an opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of our fair city! Green Gala is the best party for the parks you’ve ever seen, and we can’t wait for you to join us!

Guests will Enjoy:
