See you next year on July 27-July 28, 2018

This unique festival is full of family friendly activities including children games, 80’s Rock n Roll Concert, Dinghy Poker Run, Lighted Boat Parade and Fireworks.

The events start Friday at 5:00 with children’s games in Coghlin Park on the waterfront. Then the Rock n Roll tent opens and the 80’s music will have you dancing the night away to your favorite songs.

Saturday fun is jump started with a rowdy dinghy poker run where boaters spray each other with squirt guns as they race to card stops along the Kalamazoo River to get the best poker hand.

Saturday night rules with a breathtaking Lighted Boat Parade where boats will be decorated to promote this year’s Festival theme “Salute to Our Military”. The evening is capped off with Fireworks over the Kalamazoo River that can be easily seen by all. Check our Events page for times and other details.

Before marching into Saugatuck for your adventure, visit www.saugatuck.com to find the many places to house and feed your crew.

Hosting this family-friendly weekend is the Cowhill Yacht Club – The Little Club with a Big Heart. It is a silly name for a band of locals who have one common goal…To help the less fortunate in the Saugatuck/Douglas area communities. All proceeds will be used to help individuals and families who are in need with nowhere to turn. For more information please visit www.cowhill.org to learn more about this unique 501c organization.
