Vendors will be available to provide demonstrations and information about water-efficient technologies, such as weather-based irrigation controllers, moisture sensors, high-efficiency toilets and drip irrigation systems.
Each participating water district will have information regarding their respective rebate programs available.
“We are entering our fifth year of drought.

Participants may take part in raffles throughout the event. Raffle prizes include a water-efficient toilet, rain barrels, drip kits and smart irrigation controllers.
Families are encouraged to bring their children to the festival; face-painting, water-wise activities and crafts will be available. Eastern Municipal Water District’s Dewie the Dragon and Rancho California Water District’s Drippy will be present to entertain and educate the children.
