If you have an exhibit or presentation that is interactive, fun and environmentally informative, please complete a registration form and return it prior to January 15 for Early Bird Pricing.
This annual event typically attracts a crowd of several thousand area residents, children and community leaders. Please keep the basic premise of the environment in mind when planning your hand-outs and give-aways.
Exhibitors and non-food vendors are required to have an environmental activity or learning opportunity at their booth to encourage ways to “Take Action for a Healthy Planet.” Actions can include pledges to use reusable bags/bottles; conserving energy through household updates; writing postcards to elected official about environmental issues; etc. Participants will again have an Environmental Passport for stamping that will then be turned in for a prize drawing. We need donations of gift cards/organizational swag/gift baskets etc for the drawing–please let us know if you would like to contribute. You will be highlighted on all printed materials as doing so!

Exhibitors are generally non-profit or government organizations who are not selling anything, unless as a small fundraiser. Businesses who are giving out information about something they sell or are selling something are generally vendors. Please contact Clean Fairfax directly if you are unsure!
- Exhibitors with an environmental mission will have preference and we reserve the right to deny organizations that do not have or encourage an environmental message.
- This is an Earth Day event and we require consideration for the environment when planning your give-aways, i.e. they should be environmentally sensitive and not something that is immediately disposable.
- Vendors/Exhibitors cannot use polystyrene (Styrofoam) containers, plastic bags, and must encourage recycling. Single use plastic water bottles are also not allowed for sale OR giveaway!
