12th Annual Boston GreenFest Volunteer Registration

Volunteer Hands




VOLUNTEERS ARE JUST ORDINARY PEOPLE WITH EXTRAORDINARY HEARTS.  THEY PLANT TINY SEEDS OF LOVE IN COUNTLESS LIVES.  EACH GIVING A HAND, TOGETHER THEY MAKE A DIFFERENCE THAT LASTS A LIFETIME.




Boston GreenFest & TechExpo is the region’s largest multicultural environmental music festival. It draws crowds of thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds. This year’s theme is #DoIttheGreenWay!


The 12th Anniversary of Boston GreenFest & TechExpo will take place on the Rose Kennedy Greenway and Long Wharf right near the Waterfront/Aquarium, Friday-Sunday, August 16-18, 2019.  It will also feature the GreenTech Expo on Saturday, August 17, 2019.
