Welcome to the Grand Rapids Family Fun Guide (Print)

We are giving parents a new way to access the fabulous content GRKIDS has come to be known for – in print booklets! Published at five strategic times throughout the year, these digest-sized booklets are smart print. Giving parents another way to access our information- in a way that they can touch and feel- is the perfect complement to our digital resources. Packed with content local parents love, our print guides are another way to keep your message front and center throughout the year. We print 15,000 copies per issue.
