Click here to go to the 2020 Virtual Water Festival!

Teachers and students are invited to attend the 23rd annual Metro Area Children’s Water Festival whenever it is convenient. The in-person festival at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds was canceled due to concerns with COVID-19, but teachers and 4th grade students may participate in many of the same learning stations in various formats including recorded live online classes (closed-captioned), pre-recorded videos, and lesson plans. Check out the virtual festival page for more information. We look forward to returning in-person for the 2021 festival on September 29th, 2021!

Each year, the registration period is from mid-February to mid-March for the upcoming festival. The selection of classes takes place in the beginning of April and schools are notified no later than the beginning of May.

If you are interested in attending in 2021, check back on Valentine’s Day!
