SolarFest 2017 Postponed

With deep regret we announce that SolarFest’s annual festival is postponed until July 2018.

Last year we were able to reduce expenses but had to rely heavily on underwriting from just a few members of the SolarFest community to fund our summer festival. In short, SolarFest faces considerable financial and resource constraints.

Now more than ever — we need your help to continue our mission

Although we are skipping this summer’s festival, SolarFest will continue to offer dynamic events throughout the calendar year as we rebuild and reorganize to continue our valuable educational outreach on renewable energy, sustainability, and climate change. We need your help to make this happen! Please give some of your time, skills, and money to make SolarFest better as we continue working toward a more livable world:

Share your ideas — Complete our questionnaire 
Contribute some time and energy — Tell us how you can help
Make a tax-deductible donation — Invest in the future of SolarFest

We plan to use this year to gather important feedback from the community, strengthen the organization, develop relationships with existing and new partners, and expand our base of expert practitioners who inform us all about the best practices and innovations. Please share your thoughts and ideas!

Sincerest thanks for your past, and ongoing, support,
The SolarFest Board of Trustees
