Best Event Spaces & Baby Shower Venues in West Michigan

Grand Rapids has many great baby shower venues (or bridal shower or any small, special occasion). 

Some of these locations are free or inexpensive and some may be more of an investment–you can pick what works for you.

Create a memorable theme by hosting at a museum or zoo. If you want to do your own designing, local parks with covered shelters are great backdrops.

And for the best food, a restaurant is a great baby shower venue. You can find top pics in this article, but your favorite restaurant may also have event space, or maybe just cater!
