WaterFest 2018

Community-wide Event

Lake Phalen, Phalen Regional Park in Saint Paul

WaterFest is a free, family festival celebrating our clean lakes with fun outdoor activities and hands-on learning about local watershed topics.

This year’s theme is “Follow the Flow,” a nod to Saint Paul’s largest connected chain of lakes.

On the water: Enjoy the lake from a canoe, kayak or paddleboat, learn to fish, or participate in a fishing contest.

In the park: The fun continues with live music and dance, water games, climbing walls, a jump castle, native plant giveaway, Passport Odyssey with great prizes, live animals, food vendors and lots more!

The annual festival is presented by Ramsey-Washington Metro Watershed District, which created a water trail map for the Phalen Chain and has restored more than 100 native plant species along large areas of shoreline.

Additional WaterFest sponsors include the cities of Saint Paul, Maplewood, Roseville, Little Canada, Shoreview, White Bear Lake, Landfall and North St. Paul, Capitol Region Watershed District, Ramsey County, Met Council Environmental Services, Barr Engineering, Minnesota Native Landscapes, Minnesota Water Well Association and other partners.
