Canton Liberty Fest
CANTON’S 29TH ANNUAL LIBERTY FEST:
THURSDAY, JUNE 18 - SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 2020
Preparations are well underway for Canton’s largest annual community festival, which offers three action-packed days of fun for the whole family in beautiful Heritage Park.
Important New Festival Waste Reduction Information
In an effort to be more responsible about the potential environmental impact of an event this well-attended, and with the intention of putting new practices in place that will ensure that our operations are more sustainable for future generations, we are excited to partner with Zero Waste Event Productions in 2020. This highly reputable social enterprise helps festivals decrease their environmental footprint by diverting waste from the landfill though waste reduction, recycling, and composting. While Zero Waste is the ultimate end goal with the Festival, it is unlikely that we will achieve this in our first year. However, using their waste sorting and diversion model could help us divert more than half of the Festival’s waste from ending up in the landfill, while also educating attendees about the importance of recycling.
Here’s how YOU can help be a part of this important effort:
- Please consider using compost buckets for appropriate food scraps, which will be provided to food vendors at no cost, and emptied regularly by volunteers/staff throughout the Festival.
- Please break down cardboard, gather other clean recyclables (tin, bottles, aluminum), and make a neat pile behind your trailer/booth/workspace for our Zero Waste crew to pick up as they make their rounds.
- Ask for bags from our Zero Waste crew, if and when you need them.
- Think carefully about any potential promotional giveaways at your booth. Please consider eco-friendly or reusable items!
- Clean your space thoroughly before you depart the event.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us in advance Opens in New Window of the Festival with related questions or concerns. As Liberty Fest crowds continue to grow annually (exceeding an estimated 50,000), it’s imperative that we do our part in minimizing our impact on the environment. We are thankful for your support in this important new Festival initiative! Please GO GREEN with us in 2020!
