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 is the region’s largest multicultural environmental music festival. It draws crowds of all ages and backgrounds. This year’s event will bring eco-innovation into the spotlight from across the New England states as a means to finding durable solutions.

We invite innovation in every form and from everybody. The 11th Annual Boston GreenFest will take place at Boston City Hall Plaza and Faneuil Hall on Friday-Sunday, August 3-5, 2018.

To register, please click on REGISTER on the upper right corner of this screen. You may select as many days as you wish.
