Celebrate the fun and talent West Michigan has to offer at WestFest, a festival celebrating all things on the west side of the mitten.

WestFest will have carnival rides all across the grounds of John Ball Park. There will be Megabands for sale at $65, which gives the wearer unlimited rides for all four days of the festival (but will only be for sale at noon on May 16.) There will also be single-day unlimited ride wristbands for sale.

Saturday, May 18 will be Kids Day, where they can meet mascots Buckets & Crash, look at a Firetruck Exploration, and take part in a family Scavenger Hunt.

In addition to rides for the kids, there will be multiple craft beer breweries on site including The Mitten Brewery, New Holland Brewing, Virtue Cider, and Brewery Vivant.
