About Us


The Halton Children's Water Festival’s mission is: To further educate the Halton community about their local watershed and the value of the plants and animals that live within them.

General Information

The Halton Children's Water Festival is a four day outdoor event hosted at Kelso Conservation Area that takes place over the last week of September. We host and educate over 1,000 grade 2, 3, 4 and 5 students each day during the festival. Students are provided with interactive, curriculum-linked activities that allow them to get outside and immerse themselves in their local environment.

It’s a community initiative!

The Children's Water Education Council, Conservation Halton, Halton Region, the Halton Catholic District School Board, Halton District School Board and the Conservation Halton Foundation have formed a committed partnership to teach children about water conservation, protection, health and safety, science and technology and stewardship that will remain with our children forever.
