Jared Cramer and Reyna Masko, co-chairpersons of the Grand Haven Hispanic Heritage Fiesta steering committee, to support Ottawa County’s seasonal farmworkers and their families.

The inaugural Grand Haven Hispanic Heritage Fiesta was Sept. 28, 2019. Six months in the making, its organizers’ goal was to showcase and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the area's Hispanic community.

With 12 hours of music and dancing, a dozen food vendors and more than two dozen Mercado vendors — plus art projects and kids’ activities — the first fiesta was attended by thousands and organizers say it was enthusiastically received.
