Wake Up the Earth Festival
Saturday May 1, 2010
(Rain date Sunday May 2)
Dear Community Member,
On Saturday, thousands will gather in the Southwest Corridor Park to Wake Up The Earth! Young and old will share in the magic of music, dancing, laughter and community that makes Wake Up The Earth so special. We look to you, the Spontaneous family to help make this magic happen! There are still many ways that you can get involved...
While Wake Up the Earth is FREE to the community, it costs Spontaneous Celebrations $35,000 to put on the festival. Unlike other Boston festivals, we have no corporate sponsors. Wake Up The Earth is truly a homegrown event, funded solely by individuals and local businesses. It is only possible with your support!!! Please make a generous donation today!
PREP: Come by Spontaneous Celebrations Wed, Thurs or Fri 3-10pm and help us paint banners, sew costumes, and get ready for the festival!
DAY OF: Meet on the Green across from the Stonybrook T on the day of the festival 9am-Noon and help build a Geodesic dome!
CLEAN UP: Enjoy your day and then join the clean up crew!
Free admission to after party for volunteering 3+ hours
Join us for the Parade leaving Curtis Hall at 11am, and then stay for the festival from 12-6pm. This year's festival will include dancers, stiltwalkers, drummers, music, storytelling, popular theatre, food vendors, crafts, youth stage, children's activities and more. The festival will also feature a performance by the nationally recognized Vermont theatre company Bread and Puppet! At the end of the day, go home and rest and then come back for the After Party!!!
