3rd Cumberland River Compact Waterfest
at Cumberland Park
Saturday, June 24, 2017
Waterfest is a free, one-day family festival all about celebrating and connecting children to our local waters. Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of water quality in our watershed through fun and engaging environmental-based activities suitable for the entire family. We believe environmental awareness is an important element of community knowledge and contributes to environmentally friendly and healthy behaviors later in life.
2nd Annual Waterfest a Splashing Success!
The Compact’s 2nd Annual Waterfest was a great success and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of so many from the Nashville community. First, we would like thank the Nashville Predators Foundation for their continuing support of the Compact’s work and for sponsoring this event.
We would also like to extend a special thank you to the 16 organizations and environmental non-profits who hosted educational booths and to the 13 local attractions and businesses who donated items to our prize raffle. Thank you for helping us make Waterfest a meaningful experience for everyone who attended.
What would a festival be without a great emcee? Thank you to the best one we know, Robert Luke Entertainment, for another downright fun time.
Finally, thank you to our volunteer extraordinaire’s who sacrificed their potentially dry and air-conditioned Sunday to help us make Waterfest another “splashing success”… especially The Other Chris Scruggs for staying way past his time to capture the event on camera.
Thank you everyone. We are already looking forward to next year!
Many thanks to these organizations for supporting our event and donating gift cards/admission tickets for our prize raffle.
