Water Festival

Free day of fun and learning for the entire family!

Each year, Santa Margarita Water District hosts its Water Awareness Festival, a family-friendly event where adults and children are able to learn more about water use efficiency and local supply reliability. Residents are invited to enjoy a day of fun and learning with a hands-on tide pool exhibit, water efficient irrigation and native plant displays, water presentations, games and crafts, and music and face painting. Tour the construction of OC's largest recycled water reservoir, Trampas Dam & Reservoir. The event is held in the spring to celebrate the state of California’s recognition of May as “Water Awareness Month.”
