Come celebrate summer on the lake at Chestermere’s Annual Water Festival!

Water Festival is the Town of Chestermere's annual celebration of summer on the lake! Visitors were able to wander through the artisan market to the sounds of the Summer Music Showcase, laugh with their children at kids’ entertainer Captain Jack Sparrow, and marvel at the classic cars in the Show N Shine. Families were also able to join in the rubber duck race and free boat rides. New events this year included Salsa at the Lake. The day ended with the music of local country star Drew Gregory and the breathtaking fireworks display on Chestermere Lake! Be sure to come out next year!
