The Chamber is excited to announce that since our Market on the Grand is going so well with all you Grand Ledge rule followers that we are going to have a FREE Grand Ledge Fall Festival on Saturday, October 10th from 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. There will be crafters, food trucks, artists, handmade items, businesses doing outreach, and regular Market on the Grand vendors selling produce and homemade goodies. This event will stretch from Jaycee Park down the Riverwalk and onto the Island to abide by the gathering numbers in each section.

We can't have the Color Cruise this year, wagon rides, or the hands on stuff for kids, but we can do something to get people out enjoying the fall weather for at least one day being safe! 

We will be limiting the number of vendors and already have people signed up, so register today. 

Placement in the festival is not confirmed until the Chamber approved your registration.

We will not be accepting registrations from any political parties!
