Advocacy Groups

Sunday May 1, 2022

7202 E 21st St N
Wichita, KS 67206

Hours: Noon – 5:00 PM

Welcome, advocacy groups! It’s easy being green together, so let’s show Wichita what you’re doing to help the community and the planet. If you are not selling products, this is where your group or business signs up.

The perfect fit

The festival showcases advocacy groups and eco-activists committed to environmental stewardship, such as Ark River Coalition members who organize river clean up and river trips, SOAR promoting alternative sources of energy, as well as demonstrations by Master Gardeners from Sedgwick County Extension Service, Great Plains Nature Center, the Sierra Club and other groups. Each eco-activist group will have their own table which can feature banners, signs, literature, free products, fun activities or whatever you can dream up.
