Macatawa Water Festival

Week of July 11-17, 2020

This year’s Macatawa Water Festival has been moved to a week-long, virtual-style event. We are excited to still celebrate the Macatawa Watershed and educate and encourage you to continue to visit, explore and care for it. 

From July 11, 2020 through July 17, 2020, fourteen local businesses are joining in the fun by providing activities, suitable for all ages, that will be shared on social media and on the Macatawa Water Festival webpage.
