Mattawan Memorial Day Car Show:

The Mattawan Memorial Day Car Show is back by popular demand. With over 250+ cars and trucks last year we’ve grown out of our space at the school.

A huge thank you to Freightliner of Kalamazoo for offering their location and for supporting Mattawan students and this fun community event. All proceeds of this year’s event go to Mattawan High School’s Rocket Team and their mission to bring STEM opportunities to all students.
