The festival runs until October 1. The organizers describe Fall Water Fest as:
An exploration through music, the arts, poetry, and various outdoor explorations of the value and symbolism of water and of our need to protect it from pollution, privatization of the commons, and waste. Educational, collective, refreshing, and fun.
Events include hands-on river cleanup, a bike ride, multimedia art and performance, water protection workshops, water ceremonies, and more. The Garden at 485 Elm is participating with the River Discovery Walk on Saturday, September 17.
