Is Earth Day Right for You?

Present your Message, Cause, Product or Service

Participating at Earth Day is open to all types of organizations: non-profit, for-profit, government agencies, individuals, families, schools, clubs, churches, etc.

Having an Earth Day booth will connect you with people who are curious and those that already care deeply about the environment. They will be open to hearing your message and ready to learn about your cause, product or service that addresses the quality of life today and future generations. This is a day to educate, motivate and activate! What can you share with visitors that will influence their future actions and further commitment to create a clean, healthy sustainable and prosperous environment.

In cases where environmental issues are not the primary focus of an organization, share your green practices (carpooling, recycling) or a message that does address the environment.

The Earth Day Alliance, Inc. reserves the right to decline any exhibitor application for any reason whatsoever.

Where does Earth Day take place?
The 28th annual Earth Day Fair will take place at Laguna Lake Park. It is located at 503 Madonna Rd.

Who attends Earth Day?
Earth Day visitors come from all over San Luis Obispo County and beyond. This broad cross-section of residents and visitors enjoy and appreciate nature’s gifts. They want to learn the best practices for conservation and preserving and protecting our environment for future generations. Over 2,500 people attended Earth Day in 2017. A Kid’s Zone provides activities for children of all ages; adults like it too.

Exhibitor Fees?
All fees are based on a 12′ x 12′ space and exhibitor class:  Business/government agencies, nonprofit, public schools, or College Clubs. Additional space is available for an additional fee. Exhibitor fees help to cover event expenses: promotions, insurance and signage.

Selling at Earth Day?
This is NOT a flea market or street fair; sales are controlled. All items to be sold must be pre-approved. Non-profit groups are free to sell for their own fund-raising purposes. All items sold must be environmentally-relevant goods and services (e.g., products that have significant recycled content, or promote energy or water efficiency and conservation). Any food products sold will require proper health department permits with the County of SLO.

How to plan for the day
Exhibitor setup will take place from 9:00 am – 10:30 am. The event formally starts at 11:00am and ends promptly at 5:00pm. All exhibits must remain setup until the end of the event when breakdown and cleanup begins. Parking will be limited. Consider moving your cars to Madonna Plaza to leave room for visitors. Based on how quickly you break down you should be able to depart by 5:30 pm.

Will Earth Day work for me?
That largely depends on you, however, if you have an interesting display, a clear message, and an active, engaging staff, you may hardly have time to eat or take a break. It’s amazing what a positive, happy attitude can do. Spread the word and invite everyone you know. This will increase your chances of having an even better day.
