In abundance of caution and to safeguard the health and safety of event participants, the 2020 Children's Water Education Festival has been cancelled due to growing concerns related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Event organizers, volunteers and community organizations were looking forward to hosting nearly 7,500 Orange County students on March 25-26 at the University of California, Irvine, which would have marked the 24th anniversary of this longstanding event. This special event brings people together to educate students about local water issues and helps them understand how they can protect water supplies and the environment. It is essential to invest in educating the next generation of leaders and we hope you will join us next year for this award-winning event.

We sincerely thank you for your interest in participating in the Festival and we appreciate your understanding.
