EcoFest is the one month in the year where we invite our communities in to celebrate our unique environment with us in a big way and to share in our vision for a greener tomorrow!
If you’d like to be part of EcoFest 2023, consider hosting your own EcoFest event. If you already have a sustainability-focused event planned for this year, why not align your dates with EcoFest (18 March – 16 April) and take advantage of the free publicity and assistance offered by us during this month-long festival?
We are currently seeking more event hosts, as our event registration page has officially opened!
