Macatawa Water Festival

Saturday, July 13, 2019

9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Back for its fifth year on Holland’s Windmill Island, we hope you can join us for the Macatawa Water Festival this summer. Designed to get families and children engaged with Lake Macatawa, local waterways and the Macatawa Watershed, the festival features hands-on activities and educational exhibits from over two dozen partners from around the area. Opportunities include kayaking, paddling in a Voyageur canoe (Gabagouache), fishing (17 and under), biking, and other water related games and activities.

The festival is FREE thanks to many generous sponsors.

Fun games and activities for all ages will be available. Each young explorer 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. Check out the Macatawa Water Festival’s Facebook Event Page for updated information as the event date draws nearer.
