We are welcoming organizations and clubs for our upcoming Earth Day Community Building Festival! The event will be taking place outside at Earl Haig Community Gardens on April 22, 2023 from 11am-4pm. We require participants to be set up from 10am-4pm as there will be a one hour opportunity prior to the event starting to network with other businesses, organizations, and clubs.

The aim of the Earth Day Community Building Festival is to bring local businesses, organizations, and clubs together in one place to allow for networking and community building. City of Brantford residents will have the chance to explore various local opportunities, including volunteer positions, new businesses, clubs, teams, etc.

The theme of this event is Earth Day and we are requiring all participants to include this theme in their set ups or interactions with attendees. You do not need to be a sustainably focused organization but we do ask you acknowledge sustainability during the event. We believe sustainability includes strong communities, you’re already off to a great start! Don’t feel overwhelmed, we have a team who is ready to help you incorporate environmentalism into your display! We encourage you and your team to create an experience for attendees. Are you a soccer team? Show attendees how to do a trick. Are you a book club? Bring your recent read and show off. Are you an environmental clean up group? Come recruit volunteers for your next outing! Use this event to build community, recruit volunteers, encourage participation, and show Brantford residents what your organization is all about.
