Macatawa Water Festival

Saturday, July 15

9:00 am – 1:00 pm

For the second year in a row, the Macatawa Water Festival will be held on Holland’s Windmill Island. Over 30 community partners and sponsors will come together to offer water activities and educational experiences designed to engage both young and old to learn about restoring and preserving our lake and watershed.

People will be able to kayak, canoe, and bike around the island while exploring and learning about the great outdoors. Other activities include trout fishing (under 17 yrs old), learning about native and invasive plants, perform water quality experiments, and learn about water filtration and pollutants.

Fun games and crafts for all ages will be available in the Watershed Explorer tent. Young explorers will receive a watershed passport. As they visit and engage in the various activities, they will receive passport stamps. Once their passport is completed, they will turn it in for a prize. New this year, there will be an opportunity to learn how to upcycle and recycle and the activities surrounding upcycling.

We look forward to seeing you on July 15th!
