Year after year, the festival has continued to grow, incorporating additional environmental-related activities.

This festival is largely made possible by its sponsors which include, the Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner’s office, Pure Oakland Water, The Art Experience, Clinton River Watershed Council, and the City of Pontiac.
