See you next year!


It’s a wrap! 2018 Mermaid SPLASH Festival is officially over! THANK YOU all for a “FIN-TASTIC” time at the 3rd Annual Mermaid SPLASH Festival; a celebration of ALL things San Marcos, Texas!

We hope that you get a chance to scroll through your social media outlets to get a look at all the wonderful memories made, and we hope that you feel as proud as we do about what has been accomplished throughout this 15-day celebration. Our vision for San Marcos is a vibrant and prosperous community united by the empowering symbol of the Mermaid; celebrating our arts, culture, and heritage, progressing towards our future well-being, and fostering river guardianship.

Now in our 3rd year, we feel certain that we are indeed accomplishing what we have set out to create. The Mermaid SPLASH Festival platform is designed to inspire creative collaboration for community good!  We believe that working in the spirit of collaboration and action will contribute to our social capital, thus together creating a more prosperous and vibrant San Marcos for all. We believe in helping to enrich the quality of life for ALL San Marcans by using arts and culture to celebrate who we are, to tell our stories, to promote community engagement and stronger connections and to instill in our youth guardianship for nature and community.

We wish to thank all the businesses, community organizations, and individuals who participated in this year’s Mermaid SPLASH Calendar of Events. Thanks to you, over 28 events/activity took place throughout the course of this year's festival!

The Mermaid SPLASH Festival would not have been possible without our many sponsors, countless volunteers and community ambassadors championing the mermaid as our city’s mascot.

Please stay tuned to Mermaid Society of Texas. We have much to announce in the coming weeks. If you feel inspired and motivated to get involved with Mermaid Society SPLASH Festival for 2019, Mermaid Society community programming or just day-to-day activity… please check out our volunteer opportunities.
