Take Action – Volunteering with Cool Davis
Do you like fun creative events with good information, great food and awesome entertainment? Whether you like to help plan or just help out at events, consider joining the Cool Davis events team. Right now in the works is the Cool Davis Festival.
This flagship festival will be held on Saturday, October 12th adjacent to the Farmers Market. The Festival features Cool Solutions for households to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions in their homes, transportation and the goods and services they consume.
Last year over 70 exhibits and 20 performances were featured. Electric vehicles assemble for our Plug-In Electric Vehicle show and our Bike Rodeo/Bike Circus activities are great fun for all the family. Contact festival coordinators directly at email@example.com .
