The 22nd annual Children's Water Education Festival, the largest of its kind in the United States, was held March 28-29, 2018 at the University of California, Irvine. The award-winning event was presented by the Orange County Water District (OCWD), Disneyland Resort, National Water Research Institute and the Orange County Water District Groundwater Guardian Team.

The Festival presents a unique opportunity to educate third, fourth and fifth grade students about local water issues, the environment and STEM. All presentations support Next Generation Science Standards. Nearly 7,000 students from 25 cities in Orange County attended the 2018 Festival. 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.
