Hamilton Children's Water Festival

The Hamilton Children’s Water Festival is a three-day educational, hands-on, out of school, opportunity to educate students about the importance of water conservation, protection, awareness, respect, science technology, history and health.

The festival brings the expertise of specialists, members of industry, government and educators to provide students with the opportunity to learn directly from local professionals through their unique water and environmental demonstrations, discussions, displays and exhibits.

  • Who: Grade 4 Teachers and their students
  • What: The 13th annual Hamilton Children’s Water Festival
