Essex Region
Children's Water Festival

MAY 26 – 29, 2020

Held annually during the last week of May
at the Canadian Transportation Museum,
the festival continues to be a smashing success!


Educating thousands of students about the critical importance of clean water.

Elementary Schools

Classes are registered for a one-day field trip. Students experience hands-on activity centres that will teach them about:

  • water conservation
  • water protection
  • science & technology
  • attitudes

All activity centres are designed to meet the teaching objectives of the Ontario Curriculum. Most importantly, the festival is a FUN way for students to learn about our most valuable resource—water. A French Immersion day is offered mid-week.

There is no charge for teachers and adult supervisers. Registration flyers are distributed to all elementary schools in the city and county through local school board offices. Home-schooled students are also welcomed.
