Castle Rock County Park


This awesome annual event began in 1999 and continues to expand each year… always scheduled for the first Saturday in August.

The Waterfest Venetian Lights Boat Parade takes place at dusk on Saturday night, following the Juneau County shoreline from the Dirty Turtle Pub in O’Dell’s Bay to the Castle Rock County Park beach, culminating in a fabulous fireworks finale!

The Park’s family-friendly festivities begin Friday night with a movie in the park and continue Saturday with a 5K walk/run, decorated bike parade, lighted campsite contest, inflatables, superheroes, live music, food, and more.

On Sunday the boat parade participants gather for a brat brunch at the Dirty Turtle Pub and prizes (cash and gifts) are awarded to the parade winners.  The Best of Fleet Boat crew receives a $500 Cash Prize!

So come on down, bring your family and friends, and check out Waterfest 2017!  Contact JCEDC for more details (608) 427-2070 or email JCEDC@JuneauCounty.com.
