Get to Know Hudsonville in Just One Day!
Saturday, April 22 at Hudsonville High School
Known for its fantastic schools, family-friendly vibe, and great location, Hudsonville is one of the best places to live in West Michigan. And on Saturday, April 22, you and your family can experience all that Hudsonville has to offer in one fun-packed day!
The many wonderful shops and businesses of this charming West Michigan town are gathering together to bring you the Hudsonville Showcase: Women’s Expo and Man Cave.
Held at the newly constructed Freshmen Building at the Hudsonville High School, the event will run from 9AM to 2PM. You’ll want to get there bright and early, though, as the first 200 people to come will get free Bigby coffee and donuts!
And did we mention, this event is totally FREE?? There will be something for everyone in the family, with food, demonstrations, giveaways, kid’s activities, and much, much more. Read on to find out more!
A Taste of Hudsonville for the Whole Family
In our house, the weekend always seems to bring the same debates: going shopping vs. watching a *very important* game at home vs. whatever the kids want to do…you get the idea!
The Hudsonville Showcase is one Saturday where everyone will get to do what they want!
The girls can enjoy fashion shows, cooking demonstrations, free giveaways, new products, and of course, lots of shopping at the many booths in the Women’s Expo. No need to run around from store to store, when all of them will be right there for you in the same room! Some of the booths represented this year are: LuLaRoe, Arts & Carafes Studio, Avon Shop, Beautycounter, Painted Farmgirl, and Young Living Essential Oils, just to name a few. You can check out the complete (and growing) list of vendors here.
The great part about the Showcase is that while the girls are off shopping, the boys won’t need to just wait around for once! The Man Cave will have plenty to keep them busy: Harley Davidson bikes, wake boards, arcade game and football throwing competitions, a grill giveaway, and free food samples!
The Showcase isn’t just for adults, though! Even kids will have a great time.
First, there’s the scavenger hunt, designed just for kids. Participants can embark on an expo-wide journey to explore the many booths, obtain signatures, and win prizes. While they’re out and about, kids can hop into the Cash Cube to grab as much free cash as they can!

Outside, the Hudsonville Fire Department will have a fire truck parked for kids to climb aboard, and the firefighters will be there to help answer questions and pose for photos. Inside, kids can relax or run around in the specially designated grassy kids’ play areas, which include books and coloring books for the little ones. And don’t forget to have them stop by the all-day face painting booth to transform into a kitty, Spiderman, or anything else you can imagine.
There will also be ongoing stage demonstrations, including a live cooking class, a cappella performances from local groups, and an exciting tae kwon do demonstration!
When the family gets hungry, everyone can reconvene for plenty of lunch and snacking options. Enjoy delicious food from Jet’s Pizza, Hudsonville Grille, Post Family Farm donuts (yum!), Bigby Coffee, food trucks, and samples from local restaurants.
Getting to know a great West Michigan town, supporting the local businesses and organizations, and watching your family have a blast: sounds like a Saturday well-spent to me!
In the meantime, be sure to enter the Facebook giveaways each Thursday leading up to the event for a chance to win a $20-30 value prize!
