2009 Festival

Second Annual Port Orford Water Festival

The Second Annual Port Orford Water Festival was held on April 17 and 18, 2009. Attendance at the 2009 Water Festival was astonishing. Our best estimates put the total attendance around 450. Of that total, 146 were in grades 8 and under. Fourteen organizations hosted booths or activities and 34 volunteers were engaged. A fishing field trip was offered to Arizona Beach State Park where children were taught how to cast and then were able to try their hand at fishing.

The Festival’s Keynote Speaker, Cindy Deacon Williams, delivered the Keynote Address entitled “Facing the Risks of Climate Change: Chance Favors the Prepared Mind.”
