The Children's Water Education Festival (Festival) is presented each year by the Orange County Water District, Disneyland Resort, National Water Research Institute and the Orange County Water District Groundwater Guardian Team. The Festival, the largest of its kind in the United States, is attended by more than 7,000 third, fourth, and fifth grade students and their teachers.

The Festival presents a unique opportunity to educate students about local water issues and help them understand how they can protect water supplies and their environment. Since its inception, more than 95,000 children from schools throughout Orange County have been able to experience the Festival and all it has to offer. Throughout the Festival, participating organizations engage the students through interactive educational presentations that are taught to California State Science Standards. Because of this, educators consistently rate the education value of the Festival very high.

The Festival is provided at no cost to Orange County schools. Hosting an event of this magnitude is made possible by many generous sponsors, presenters and dedicated volunteers.
