Water Festival is the City of Chestermere's annual celebration of summer on the lake! Visitors are able to wander through the artisan market to the sounds of the Summer Music Showcase, enjoy a  beer or glass of wine in the Lions Beer Garden, laugh with their children at kids’ entertainer Captain Jack  in the Kids Fun Zone. Families are also able take a ride along the lake in the Boat Rides. The day ends with the music of this year's headliner Drew Gregory and the breathtaking fireworks display on Chestermere Lake!
