WESTERN COLORADO'S

CHILDREN'S WATER FESTIVAL

Each year over 2,500 fifth grade students assemble to Colorado Mesa University's campus in Grand Junction, Colorado, to participate in a two day Western Colorado Children's Water Festival. The festival has grown to be recognized as the largest Children's Water Festival in the State of Colorado. The presentations are designed to give students an opportunity to learn about the many different roles water plays in their individual lives, their community, and the world in which they live. 

WATER FESTIVAL CORE VALUES

HANDS ON

Presentations are structered to the fifth grade learning level, which allows the students to retain the information in a hands on and educational manner. We work closely with school districts, private schools, and home schools to match the festival experience with their water curriculum.

WATER INDUSTRY

Students have an opportunity to learn about  the variety of water related career opportunities, as well as water rights, water in the human body, water conservation, water pollution, water safety, water species, water treatment,  the dependency of water in a variety of industries, and much more.

HIGHER EDUCATION

For many students,  the festival gives them their first opportunity to visit a college campus and therefore, introduces the idea of higher education. Students get to walk on the Colorado Mesa University campus as well as experience what it is like to sit in a college classroom setting.
