For many years, the Big Rapids Jaycees have coordinated the annual Big Rapids Independence Day
activities. During the pandemic, the local Jaycees have joined as members of the Mecosta County Area Chamber, encouraging growth and enhancing connections with newer community and business leaders.


We are excited to carry on their tradition thanks to generous sponsorships from the city of Big Rapids, Ferris State University, and support from community groups including the Lions Club, Rotary Club, Elks, Eagles, American Legion and Am Vets, local military personnel, Green Township, Mecosta County Fair Board, Isabella Bank, and Band of Locals.
