4th Tuesday at Lansing City Market

Join us from 6-8 p.m. for our Fourth Tuesday Networking Event at Lansing City Market, located at 325 City Market Dr. in Lansing. 

Lansing City Market provides the Greater Lansing region, and out-of-town guests, a year-round, one-of-a-kind shopping experience in a family friendly environment. Established in 1909, the Market’s recent reconstruction along the Grand River has strengthened Lansing’s downtown corridor by creating a welcoming home for more than a dozen merchants. Currently the Market features a wide variety of merchants offering: kayak and canoe rentals (weather-permitting), beer, wine, produce, grocery items, artisan cheese, organic meat, natural health care products, bbq, gift items, and a full-service bar and grill.

New vendors are coming in regularly now, so stay up-to-date on what's happening at Lansing City Market by signing up for our weekly email newsletter. It is going to be a great summer! Be sure to spend part of yours at the Market.

Complimentary appetizers, sponsored by Change Media Group, will be provided by Red’s Smokehouse and Hill’s Cheese. A cash bar will be provided by the Waterfront Bar & Grill.

Our Mission

The Grand River Connection seeks to develop a stronger network to support Lansing and East Lansing’s young and vital workforce. We exist to bring together young professionals in our community who are in their 20s and 30s. Our diverse, non-partisan group provides fun, social, and professional connections that encourage economic growth and community involvement where we live, work, and play.

Our History 

The Grand River Connection was founded in Spring 2005 to fill a gap in the community. Greater (East) Lansing is a great place for college students and a great place to raise a family, but for those in between there was no viable social network. With a goal of filling that gap in mind, the GRC was born. 

Young professionals in their 20s and 30s in the Greater Lansing area are welcome to join the group, and joining is very simple. There are NO membership fees, and most of our events are FREE! Simply sign up for our monthly newsletter by clicking the big button at the top right of this website.
