Muskegon Community College, which has hosted Mayfest for the past 35 years, will transition to a new, but similar, event called Community Family Fest on Saturday, June 4, 2016, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the main MCC campus. The event is free and open to community members of all ages.

“Mayfest was an opportunity for community organizations, clubs and groups to share information, while Community Family Fest is more of MCC’s way of thanking the community,” explained Trynette Lottie-Harps, the MCC dean of community outreach. “We would not be where we are today without the support of the community and we want to show them our gratitude.”

“You will find a similarity between the two because Community Family Fest, like Mayfest, is a celebration. It’s a community gathering that will showcase Muskegon Community College’s positive impact on the region.”

Among the fun activities scheduled are bouncy houses, train rides, campus tours, sport clinics by MCC staff and students, a picnic with free food, and the chance to meet Jayhawk the mascot.

“You’ll be able to learn more about the programs, activities and events year-round at MCC,” added Lottie-Harps.

“We thank those who attended and supported Mayfest over the past three decades. We hope you’ll continue to support MCC and allow us to thank you and your family with Community Family Fest.
