Meijer Family Fun Zones
Meijer sponsors a large variety of local events for everyone in the family, like Thunder Over Louisville, Detroit Belle Isle Grand Prix and the Meijer Chicago Bears Family Fest. Enjoy a team scrimmage, tons of fun activities for the whole family, along with area attractions like John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids, Mich. and the Milwaukee County Zoo in Wisconsin.
We bring our Meijer Family Fun Zones to community events across the Midwest, providing free treats and fun activities for children of all ages. Our Meijer food truck is often on hand, serving up snacks like popcorn and Purple Cow ice cream. Kids and adults can gather to enjoy activities that channel their creative side or climb up in our big red – or sometimes blue or green, depending on the event – inflatable chairs for a family photo.
The Thunder Over Louisville celebration officially kicks off the Kentucky Derby Festival’s two-week event, including the popular airshow that features America’s high-flying “Ambassadors in Blue,” the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. As a sponsor, Meijer is happy to support this community event, helping to keep the airshow free to the public. It draws 650,000 spectators annually.
Each spring, Detroit’s Belle Isle is transformed into a high-octane entertainment zone for the Detroit Grand Prix. This weekend of family fun goes beyond racing to include music and family activities. The Meijer Fan Zone houses a concert stage and interactive games for kids of all ages.
The Meijer LGPA Classic for Simply Give is a popular Grand Rapids event for the entire family, providing so much for kids to do on and off the golf course. In addition to seeing the LPGA professionals, young golf fans can participate in a Fun Run during the Meijer LPGA Classic 5k Run & Walk presented by Kellogg’s and visit the Junior Clinic presented by Procter & Gamble. The event’s two-hour clinic features fun activities, games and group instruction by LPGA professionals and local golf pros.
