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.

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