The Orange County Water District (OCWD) is proud to present the award-winning Children's Water Education Festival.

The Festival presents a unique opportunity to educate third, fourth and fifth grade students about local water issues and the environment and helps them understand how they can protect water supplies and their environment. Since its inception, more than 147,000 Orange County students have experienced the Festival and all it has to offer.

Registration for the 27th annual Festival is now open. Interested teachers, presenters and volunteers are invited to click on the menu bars above to learn more.

The Festival is provided at no cost to Orange County schools. Hosting an event of this magnitude is made possible by many generous sponsors, presenters and dedicated volunteers. We are proud to work with such committed organizations and individuals each year.
