Get Ready for Earth Day 2013, Coming Up Sunday, April 21! (Rain Date April 28)
While winter still lies before us, and April may seem a long, long way off, it’s coming right at us, and the Earth Day Coalition is kicking into gear, organizing for the 2013 Columbia Area Earth Day Festival. This will be our 24th consecutive year holding this event, and we hope it will be among the best ever.
To make that so, we invite your participation. Here are several options:
VOLUNTEER: Volunteering for the Earth Day Festival is a good way to get involved with other groups and individuals who are dedicated to improving environmental awareness.
If you or a group that you are affiliated with has interest in doing so, please visit the “Contact Us” page.
PARTICIPATE IN ECO AVENUE: Eco Ave. is at the heart of Earth Day. It is the central block in the Street Fair where we congregate the booths that are involved in sustainability education.
If your organization, agency or business fits the Eco Ave. criteria and is interested in getting a booth, please note that the application deadline is December 31, 2012. To download an application please CLICK HERE.
VOLUNTEER TO PERFORM: All performers at the Festival volunteer their time and talents. Musicians, dancers, spoken word artists and more are all encouraged to apply to be considered for inclusion on the schedule. The application deadline is December 31, 2012. To download and application please CLICK HERE.
Note that we always have more performers interested than slots available, so please don’t be disappointed if you are not selected this year. This said, we really appreciate your interest and would love to consider your act for inclusion.
PARTICIPATE IN THE STREET FAIR: Booth registration for all booths except Eco Ave. begins on February 1, 2013. If you had a booth last year and your e-address hasn’t changed, we will be sending you registration information immediately prior to this date. If you haven’t participated in the past, or if your e-address has changed, we would be happy to add you to the list to receive this info. Just send us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: INFO ON OTHER PAGES ON THE SITE HAVE NOT YET BEEN UPDATED FOR 2013. We will do this as soon as possible. In the meantime, the information above is correct and current for Earth Day 2013.
