A Tradition of Community Fun

Family Fare Flix on the Field originally started in 2020 as a creative response to the canceled Whitecaps baseball season due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It quickly became a beloved tradition, and now it’s back by popular demand.

“Creating fun, affordable, memorable family experiences is the core of what the Whitecaps brand is all about,” says Dan Morrison, VP of Sales & Marketing for the Whitecaps. “When we first began showing movies on our centerfield screen, it was an instant hit.”

With over 5,000 moviegoers attending in the summer of 2020, this event has proven to be a hit. Enjoy West Michigan’s favorite ballpark snacks, craft beer, popcorn, and movie candy to enhance your movie experience.

“At SpartanNash and Family Fare, we are passionate about engaging with the neighborhoods we serve,” said SpartanNash Director of Retail Marketing, Jessica Wong.

“We are excited to contribute to moments for local families and communities to come together in creating lasting memories at LMCU Ballpark.”
