2023 Application for Education Booths

  • Thank you for choosing to be an Educator at the Whole Earth Festival!

    Education is central to WEF's mission of sustainability, art, music, food, and holistic well-being. We are also drawing awareness of cultural appropriation and racism and their impacts on communities and the environment. It is important to respect and recognize the significance of cultural traditions, items, and customs. Thank you for applying to enrich our Festival with your knowledge. It is through knowledge that we are all empowered.

    The Education Booths will be along Centennial Walkway on the UC Davis Quad. Each booth will pay a $25.00 booth fee for the three days of the Festival. Each booth is 10ft x 10ft. Tents will be provided unless you would like to use your own. Please specify if you are able to provide your own tables and chairs.

    *The deadline for applications is March 17th. Please allow yourself plenty of time to complete the application before the deadline as it will make it easier for us to accommodate you and give your application our fullest attention.

    *Please note: Education booths are not allowed to sell items, however, they may hand out free items. If you are interested in selling services or handmade crafts, please check out the commercial service booth or craft vendor application! Please contact us at education@wef.ucdavis.edu if any questions arise.

  • Participation Agreement

    Cultural appropriation is the disrespectful or inappropriate (intentional or accidental) adoption of any practice, item, custom, tradition, or idea from a culture/group apart from one's own. This could be wearing a Native American headdress when one is not Native American, wearing an Indian bindi or a sari for aesthetic purposes, or wearing traditional Mexican or Native American clothes as Halloween costumes.

    Appropriating another's culture is theft, and the Education Team at WEF requires that all of our applicants are informed that we will not tolerate appropriation of any kind. Any knowledge that is being shared, any practice being participated in shall not usurp any other culture's traditions, practices, or ways of life.

    We reserve the right to ask any applicant to leave the Festival if they engage in appropriation of items, practices, activities that are not their own.

    We hope to create a safe, inclusive, and memorable space for everyone that comes to our Festival.
