About City of Big Rapids

Big Rapids is most fortunate to blend the arts, recreation and culture of larger communities with the family environment of a mid sized town to create an advantageous City in which to live and raise a family. Many of the local amenities come from Ferris State University, a college of over 13,000 students, which is located along the southern edge of town.

Students, professors and educators bring a dimension to the community which encourages acceptance of newcomers and new ideas. The University, known throughout the nation as a training ground for both academic and trade pursuits, drives much of the economic success which thrives here.

  • Have you been downtown recently and taken a look at all of our new banners? #festivalofbanners2019 is a community art project organized by @artworks_br . Where artists and non-artists, young and old individuals and groups, are invited to paint a design a banner. The banners are then hung on the City of #BigRapids light poles, along Michigan Ave. and the Baldwin St. bridge, for the entire year. These are only a few of the many banners that now line our #downtown streets. Thank you to all of the community sponsors who support this festival and community event. #community #festival #banners #art #artevent #arttown #communityart #communityartists #artworksbigrapids #downtownbigrapids #youllloveithere
