The 2018 Festival Theme is, “Water for Health.”
Who: 4th grade students in Weld, Morgan, and Adams Counties.

The Central Colorado Water Conservancy District created the Children’s Water Festival in 1991. This festival is one of the oldest children’s water festivals in the nation. In 2006, the City of Greeley Water Conservation and Stormwater programs began co-sponsoring the event.
