Water Festivals

Since 2000, Make a Splash with Project WET water festivals have been held throughout the nation. Water festivals are educational, fun, interactive events where students explore a diversity of water topics using Project WET materials. Michigan Project WET facilitators coordinate the Michigan festivals, which occur in a variety of locations throughout the state such as Big Rapids, Michigan. Project WET has a developed a guide to planning a water festival.  https://www.projectwet.org/what-we-do/make-a-splash

Macatawa Water Festival

This year’s Macatawa Water Festival has been moved to a week-long, virtual-style event from July 6 - July 11,2020. Due to the likely group size restrictions that will still be in place and the scale and feel of the festival, we feel that this is the best option at this time.

We are excited to still educate you about the Macatawa Watershed and encourage you to visit, explore and care for it.

Fun activities for all ages will be available virtually. Please stay tuned for more information as we release our schedule for the Macatawa Water Festival week! https://outdoordiscovery.org/education/community-events/macatawa-water-festival/
