About the PCWF

The Peterborough Children’s Water Festival (PCWF) is a community event that provides students with the opportunity to discover the importance and diversity of water.

The PCWF works in partnership with educators, water quality and quantity specialists, community volunteers, conservation groups, industry and government to create a festival full of activities that are educational and fun for children in grades 2 to 5.

The 18th Annual Peterborough Children's Water Festival will be held May 28, 29th and 30th, 2019.

The Peterborough Children's Water Festival is for children in Grade 2 to 5.



The Peterborough Children's Water Festival has been a successful educational event for 17 years thanks to the support of our community partners and local businesses.
