Lansing, MI -( Come join MCRGO for our West Michigan regional picnic in Grand Rapids!

The picnic is a great opportunity for all gun owners and Second Amendment supporters in West Michigan to come together and enjoy good food, good conversation, and to discuss current Second Amendment rights issues. The picnic is happening the same weekend as Art Prize, providing families with a double reason to visit Grand Rapids. This is our final picnic of the year and often the largest.

We encourage the lawful carry of firearms in a manner that is comfortable to you however carrying a firearm is not required. Feel free to bring anyone along that you wish, this is open to the public and anyone can attend, membership not required.

We do ask that you do NOT bring any alcoholic beverages as alcohol and firearms don’t mix. But if you would like to bring a dish to pass or a beverage to share feel free to bring it along. Hot dogs & beverages will be provided by MCRGO, but we can never have enough!
