What Volunteers Do

Volunteers do everything from assisting with vendor check-in, greeting festival guests and conducting crowd counts, working in the Green Car Show area, and helping with the festival’s children’s activities.  They also assist with stage management, parking, and social media.  Support our ‘Zero-Waste Team’ to ensure that our Earth Day festival produces as little waste as possible.

Start Volunteering Now!

We need your help before the festival as well as the days of the festival! You can start helping today by sharing CEC’s Earth Day Festival with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
