Message: date_default_timezone_get(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for 'EST/-5.0/no DST' instead

    The HCWF combines Ontario curriculum requirements and offers fun, hands-on learning activity centres that are displayed throughout the event in a natural outdoor setting. Nearly 60 interactive activity centres teach children about water conservation and protection, water health and safety, water science and technology, and water and society.


  • Learn about water in a fun and interactive way

    The Halton Children’s Water Festival provides curriculum linked education about all aspects of water through inquiry and investigation. Schools seeking Ontario EcoSchools certification can count their attendance at the HCWF as a field trip in the Curriculum category (one submission per grade level).

  • Community support makes Festival success

    The Festival is made possible through generous contributions from Halton’s community which helps to further enhance festival activities and financially assist students to participate in the festival.
