Please join us for morning clean-ups in and around the bayou! Meet us on the Orleans Avenue Bridge (Carrollton side) at 10AM Sunday, May 19th and/or Monday, May 20th. We will be picking up left over litter from the areas outside the festival grounds and in the bayou. We will have garbage bags and some grabbers. You should bring gloves and any helpful equipment. We will have a handful of kayaks for the bayou portion of the clean-up. For your amazing volunteer efforts, you’ll receive schwag that morning and will automatically be entered into the “Cash for Trash” raffle.
If you’re environmentally-minded AND you like to win stuff….we have the thing for you! Stop by the Canopy Club entrance next to the Friends of Bayou St. John Orleans Stage OR the Volunteer Check-in at Orleans and Jeff Davis during the festival to get a recyclable bag, fill it up at the fest with any recyclables you see about, and return the bag to the same place to fill out a raffle ticket for the change to win cool prizes like gift certificates to neighborhood restaurants and $100 cash! Big thanks to our partners and the Bayou Boogaloo Green Team leaders Kayak-It-Yat for coordinating this program with us. Must return bag by 6pm to be entered. Drawings every day of the festival on the Orleans stage between the last two acts!
Located next to The Ruby Slipper Cafe Kids Stage, the interactive Arts & Crafts tent is fun for kids of all ages.
