Park Theatre Holland, MI
The Park Theatre Foundation provides West Michigan communities with entertainment and culture while empowering artists, championing self-expression, and preserving the historic Park Theatre. With a rich history dating back to 1886, the Park Theatre has been a cherished venue for generations of movie-goers and community events. Originally built as a woodworking mill and feed store, it later became the Colonial Theater. Destroyed in a fire and rebuilt, it reopened as the Park Theatre in 1936. For over six decades, the Park Theatre thrived as a beloved cultural hub, eventually closing in 1984. In December of 2001, the Park Theatre Foundation, a newly created nonprofit organization, took over ownership of the building, and a new chapter began.
Today, the Park Theatre has been lovingly restored and transformed into a flexible, multi-use venue that serves as a vibrant cultural center for the downtown Holland community. Collaborating with diverse segments of the community, the Park Theatre has hosted a wide range of events, from concerts and receptions to comedy troupes and dinner/theater productions. Nonprofit fundraisers, reunions, and birthday parties have also found a home at the Park Theatre, and the theater has been a sought-after space for festivals such as Tulip Time, Tulipanes, and various art fairs, providing a unique and captivating backdrop for showcasing local talent.
