This year, we are featuring a new twist on a GR Pops favorite: classical music featured in blockbuster hits! Hear familiar tunes as they have made their way from the concert hall to the movie theatre. To finish the evening, we perform the 1812 Overture as spectacular fireworks light up the Michigan sky.

But it's much more than a's an experience.
Not just a simple "concert in the park," the D&W Fresh Market Picnic Pops are packed with family-friendly activities, music and plenty of chances to create lasting memories. So pack a picnic with your favorite treats, load the car with your family and friends, and leave the rest to us!
Gates open at 5:45 pm so arrive early for pre-concert entertainment by The Gentleman of Ragtime and kid-approved activities such as crafts, face painting and an instrument petting zoo!

Select Table seating is available to purchase online at your convenience. If you require additional seating, please contact the Grand Rapids Symphony Ticket office at 616.454.9451 x 4, Monday thru Friday, 9 am – 5 pm.
