What is the Wonder Wagon?

The Wonder Wagon is a bohemian buggy of carnival proportions that, when not sitting in the drive of 106 Fuller has been spotted at the Fulton Street Farmers Market, the DAAC and Ah-Nab-Awen Park. On special occasions one might spot a colorful ensemble marching the Wagon through the streets, spreading curiosities and enchanting the good folk of Grand Rapids.

On Sunday, December 21 at 7 p.m., three local folk bands will take to the floor at the Beerhorst residence for the Wonder Wagon Winter Concert located at 106 Fuller Avenue SE. 

"We do house shows in the winter as a way to help us keep connected with friends through the winter months that can otherwise be a bit lonely," says Rick Beerhorst.

The lineup includes Arrowhill, a family group, part of the music collective of the Treehouse Community in Baxter neighborhood. Saltbreaker consists of a group of local musicians specializing in instrumental and contemplative ambience. 

The Wealthy Orphans is a collaboration between Rick Beerhorst and band-mates. They have produced two albums and performed twice at the WYCE Jammies at the Intersection. 

A donation of $10 is suggested for the evening. The house show is all ages and open to the public.
