The 23rd annual Children's Water Education Festival, the largest of its kind in the United
States, will be held
March 27-28, 2019
University of California, Irvine.
The award-winning event is presented by the Orange County Water District (OCWD),
Disneyland Resort, National Water Research Institute and the Orange County Water District Groundwater
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. All presentations are taught to Next Generation Science Standards. Since its inception, more than
129,000 Orange County students have experienced the Festival and all it has to offer.
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.
