Essex Region Children's Water Festival

The Essex Region Children's Water Festival educates thousands of Grade 3, 4 and 5 students about the critical importance of clean water to their future.

Held annually during the last week of May/first week of June at the Canadian Transportation Museum and Heritage Village, the festival continues to be a smashing success.

Elementary schools register their classes for a one day field trip. Students experience hands-on activity centres which will teach them about water conservation, protection, science, technology and 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 of resources - water. A French Immersion day is offered mid-week.

The Festival also hosts an "Environmental Careers Day" introducing Grade 10, 11 and 12 students to a variety of environmental careers. These job opportunities range from plumbing and pipe fitting to recreational careers to water resource engineering. Students have the opportunity to interact individually with professionals in varied careers to learn more about education, technical aptitudes and typical skills required.

Pre-Registration is required to attend the Essex-Region Children's Water Festival. For more information, click on the Festival link on the left of this page.
