Third annual Fall Family Funfest

This year’s Fall Family Funfest will be held from 3-7 p.m. September 22 at Nelis’ Dutch Village and the Holland Town Center 12330 James St. Holland.

This is the 60th Anniversary year for Nelis’ Dutch Village and the village plans on offering extra activities . . . So don’t forget your cowboy boots and hat and plan to go for a pony ride and learn how to line dance!

New this year: along with our semi-truck show, we’ll also have a car and motorcycle show.

Check back later as details are finalized. We’re hoping this year’s event will not be rained out or the victim of a late September heat wave!

Truck Show

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

We’re adding a custom car and motorcycle show to our event this year! We’re working out the details for this show. Check back later for information on registration.
Registration for the car/motorcycle show can be done here once the details are finalized. Check back soon!


Grant Me Hope appreciates its sponsors. Without you, we would not be finding homes for foster children or throwing great community events such as this Family FunFest! Our sponsors receive shouts out on social media with links to their websites, their logo and links on the individual web pages of the children we’re working with and on our supporters page. We’ll have more information available soon about the sponsorships for this event.
