The Elizabethtown–White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce announced that its busy planning the 42nd Annual White Lake Water Festival for Friday, May 21 and Saturday, May 22, 2021.

“We are proceeding with caution and hoping that COVID restrictions are loosened up quite a bit more by mid-May,” Chamber Executive Director Terri Dennison said. “We will be asking everyone to respect social distancing guidelines and to wear a mask throughout the festivities.”

Several things are impacting changes to the Festival including COVID restrictions and changes to the Goldston’s Beach Area. “Goldston’s Beach is actually going to have more room to space out vendors and entertainment,” Dennison said.

“We have discussed many options for the parade and decided to keep its traditional route with line-up at Camp Clearwater and procession down White Lake Drive,” Dennison added. “We will proceed with planning and hope not to have to make a decision to cancel if the restrictions are not lifted.”

Friday’s Classic Cruise-In to Goldston’s Beach and the Car Show at Lake Church on Saturday are being organized by Cameron McGill of Lake Church.

Music on the main stage will take place Friday night from 6-9 p.m. and on Saturday from 5 to 11 p.m. Contracts with several Festival favorites are being negotiated now. An announcement on the musical line-up is expected shortly.

Dennison reminds businesses, individuals, and organizations that they can participate in the Water Festival by sponsoring the event, entering the parade and/or displaying at the craft and vendor area on Saturday afternoon.
