Check out what a Children's Water Festival is all about! 

The Children's Water Festival is a fun and educational event for students in grades 2 through 5 to learn about the importance of water in their daily lives.


Teachers from across St. Thomas, and Elgin County, will be invited to register their classes to attend one day of this 4 day Festival in early 2024. The Festival rotates through London, St. Thomas and Woodstock on a 3 year basis. In 2024, the Festival will be held in St. Thomas at Pinafore Park.


Maintaining the quality and quantity of our surface and ground 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, 2023), St. Thomas (2008, 2011, 2014, 2017) and Woodstock (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.
