Registration is now open! The deadline to register has been extended to March 24, 2023, for this year’s in-person water festival.

The in-person festival will be Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. This festival is open to all metro-area fourth grade classes and homeschool students. The registration deadline has been extended to March 24, 2023.

There are often more classes interested in participating in the festival than we can accommodate, therefore you are registering your class to be included in the selection process that works to ensure equitable representation. Classes selected to participate will be notified by early May. All remaining registered classes will be moved to a waiting list in the event another class cancels.

The virtual festival is available year-round and is open to all. Click here to learn more.
