The Children's Water Festival is a fun and educational event for students in grades 4 and 5 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.


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.
