Water Festivals and Events

Please join Project Clarity and over 30 community partners for the Macatawa Water Festival on Saturday, July 9, 2016. at Windmill Island Gardens. Children of all ages will learn about our most precious natural resources: Lake Macatawa and the Macatawa Watershed. The public will be welcomed free of charge to enjoy a day of interactive educational experiences, water and land activities, and fun-filled family time; experiences designed to engage young and old to learn about restoring and preserving our lake and watershed. The first stop will be the Welcome Station where students will receive a "Macatawa Watershed Explorer Handbook" to continue their journey on the island.

The focus of the annual Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival is the National Coast Guard Memorial Service honoring those who sacrificed their lives in the service of their country while fulfilling their motto "SEMPER PARATUS" ("Always Ready"). Each year since the first picnic in 1924 and the first festival in 1937, we have celebrated our heroes, the men and women of the United States Coast Guard with fun filled family events at the annual Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival. Grand Haven is honored by its designation as "Coast Guard City, USA" by an Act of Congress and signed by the President of the United States on November 13, 1998.
