EarthFest Booth Applications Open:

Before we know it April will be here and we will be kicking off Earth Month at ETSU! ETSU Department of Sustainability will hold its annual Earth Day Festival. This is a time when campus and community groups come together to celebrate Earth Day and promote a variety of topics related to environmental and sustainability awareness. This year we will be highlighting the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Each booth will feature a poster of the goal or goals they best align with in the hopes of bringing awareness to these efforts.

I would like to invite your group, organization or department to attend the festival on Friday, April 21st! It will take place on ETSU Commons (in front of D.P Culp Center) from 12pm - 4pm. In the event of rain, the festivities will be moved to a covered location. More details will be sent closer to the event date.

If your organization has an environmental/sustainability related topic to promote and you would like to reserve a table at the Earth Day festival, please click here and fill out the application by April 1st. If you have any questions about the event, please email them to
