The 2019 Family FunFest will likely be even better than 2018!
As plans for the 2019 event are being made, we’ll update this page. But for now, we’re incredibly pleased with how well the 2018 Family FunFest went! We couldn’t have done it without our co-hosts Nelis’ Dutch Village and the Holland Town Center, our sponsors and YOU!
Mark your calendars for Sept. 21, 2019 — we’re making plans already!
No Tickets! No Preregistration! No set cost!
We’d appreciate a free will donation to enter the event. Our sponsors made it possible to keep this event affordable and open to all!
This event started as a simple truck show in 2016 as a way for Grant Me Hope to launch our “Going National” campaign. This campaign is ongoing and is successful because of the more than 20 West Michigan trucking companies that agreed to partner with us. They take our mission national on the backs of their trucks with our educational decals. These 2′ x 2′ stickers carry messages about the need for foster and adoptive homes on thousands of miles of our nation’s highways. We know these stickers are working. We’ve received phone calls from other states and photos from people who have seen them on the roads. We currently have 850 decals on trucks that are moving around the 48 contiguous states. Staying true to our roots, we’ll invite all these trucking companies out to show off their best trucks, complete with a Grant Me Hope decal. Most of the companies offer treats and free giveaways.

Custom Car/Motorcycle show
A custom car and motorcycle show was added to our event this year!
With support from Team 517 Blue, our third annual Family FunFest to help make it bigger and better!
The excellent show supported the mission of Grant Me Hope to educate the public about the plight of foster children and our work to find them adoptive homes before they age out and face homelessness. Thank you to all who came out and made this first custom car/motorcycle show fabulous and a complete success! Your cars are amazing!
Grant Me Hope appreciates its sponsors.
Sponsors allow us to keep this event open to the public for a free will donation instead of charging admission. This is important, as we invite foster children living in institutions to this event. We cannot expect them to pay admission.
Without our supportive sponsors, we would not be finding homes for foster children or throwing great community events such as this Family FunFest!
