Water Festival


Kids Learn About Water with Fun, Hands-On Activities

Each spring, approximately 1,800 third-grade students and teachers from public, private and homeschools attend the festival which is sponsored by Fort Collins Utilities and Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (NCWCD). The festival is packed with fun, hands-on activities that teach students about water. The 25th annual Children's Water Festival is being held at Colorado State University in May 2016.

Students spend half a day attending classroom presentations and visiting many displays in the exhibit hall. Colorful T-shirts are available for purchase.

The Fort Collins Children's Water Festival is the longest-running festival in the state.

Emphasis is placed on hands-on, age-appropriate activities, including learning about:

  • Wetlands and rivers
  • Aquatic insects and wildlife
  • Water resources
  • Supply and conservation
  • Water quality and safety
  • Agricultural uses
  • Water chemistry
  • Water and wastewater treatment
  • Drought and flooding
  • Importance of water in the human body
