Committee

The Hutchinson Jaycee Water Carnival committee works year round to plan, coordinate and execute Hutchinson’s city festival for the enjoyment of the entire community.

The committee consists mainly of members from the Hutchinson Jaycees. Many other volunteers are needed at events during Water Carnival week, and you are encouraged to contact committee members if you wish to participate.
