Des Moines Waterland Festival & Parade
A Waterland tradition since 1959
Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers. Waterland Festival simply would not be possible without your support. Unfortunately, this year will be a new chapter in the 60 year Waterland Festival tradition. In light of the current covid-19 health crisis, our organization and city officials decided to cancel Waterland Festival events including 4th of July Fireworks, community BBQ, Waterland Festival weekend, Wheels & Keels car show.
Instead, we have joined with the Rotary Club of Des Moines/Normandy Park to host four virtual community events, the Running of the Flags Fun Run/Walk/Bike on July 4-5, Artwalk and Scavenger Hunt on July 11-12, Waterland Grand Parade Virtual Edition on July 18) and Poverty Bay Wine Festival (Virtual Facebook Event on July 25, during the Waterland Festival month of July.
