The Grand Rivers Tourism Commission is the official Destination Marketing Organization for the city of Grand Rivers.
In 2001, with the encouragement of the resort and restaurant community, the Grand Rivers City Council adopted legislation to create the Grand Rivers
Tourism Commission. The goal of the Commission is to serve our community and our visitors by promoting and creating positive visitor experiences,
fostering economic development and enhancing the quality of life. Tourism Commission funds are derived from the 1% restaurant tax and the 3%
room taxes paid by hotel and restaurant guests. The taxes that fund the Grand Rivers Tourism Commission are collected from restaurants and
hotels within the city limits of Grand Rivers.
The Grand Rivers Tourism Commission sponsors/or supports the following annual events: The Grand Rivers Spring Quilt Festival, LBL Ultra Trail Runs,
Top Gun Car Shows, Marina Day fireworks, Hunters Moon Festival, Christmas Festival of Lights and the Badgett Theater.
