Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic both the St. Thomas-Elgin and Perth Children's Water Festivals will be postponed. We look forward to a time when children can once again spend time together, continuing to care for each other and our water!

The Children's Water Festival is a fun and educational event for students to learn about the importance of water in their daily lives.
Maintaining the quality and quantity of our groundwater and surface water is vital for the future development of our communities and for the health and enjoyment of the residents. Educating youth about water and the environment is the perfect way to start doing this.
This year, 2020, the St. Thomas-Elgin Children's Water Festival will be held May 12- 15, and the Perth Children's Water Festival will be held June 2 & 3.
Previous festivals have been held in London (2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, 2019), St. Thomas (2008, 2011, 2014, 2017) and Woodstock (2001, 2009, 2012, 2015, 2018).
The Children's Water Festivals are fully fundraised each year and have relied both on generous volunteer and financial support from the community.
