Drive Electric Earth Day Tribute is on Facebook:


Citizen's Climate Lobby "Uniting from Home" event Saturday, April 25, 11a-2p.

It's official! The Earth Day Expo is moving to Western Dakota Campus in April 24, 2021 !

Thank you for your support in our decision to cancel the 2020 Earth Day Expo. This event is all about the wellness of our planet and our community and we appreciate your understanding of what the Coronavirus (COVID-19) meant and how important it was to be proactive in helping to prevent the threat of infection. 

We will use this extra year of planning to make the Earth Day Expo for 2021 even better 

Become a Vendor 

The building blocks of our Earth Day Expo is our diverse vendors. They work hard every day to make sure Rapid City and our surrounding areas have a clean, healthy and vibrant community in which to raise our families. These organizations and local business' bring together a rich collection of knowledge and services unlike anything you will find in any one day event in the Black Hills! If you feel like you or your organization would be a fit for our 2019 Expo, fill out a vendor registration form and help us to progress the Black Hills towards a sustainable future! Last year we had a huge outpouring of interest from potential vendors and we expect even more this year so reserve your spot as a vendor today! 

Become a Sponsor


There are so many ways you can help us continue to grow our Earth Day Expo! Something we seek each year is sponsorship to help cover the costs of making this a day filled with activities, learning and fun for the entire community! This Expo is offered free to the public and all are welcome! We are a non-profit organization so we rely upon the generosity of our sponsors. If you are passionate about the health of our community and our planet, why not become a sponsor ? Your sponsorship dollars are not only greatly appreciated but are tax deductible!

Help out by becoming a Volunteer

We couldn't begin to take on the large job of creating this Earth Day Expo without the help of our many volunteers. Our volunteers help us with everything from setting up and taking down tables and display areas,to many more things going on throughout the day. Our volunteers can choose to help indoors or out. If you enjoy working with children, we have children's games and crafts going on all day. We have volunteers helping at tables for door prizes or just keeping us organized throughout the day. We encourage you to sign up to volunteer if you have a passion for the planet and our community. It's a great way to give back while working with some wonderful people!  If you're curious but not yet ready to commit, please use our contact information listed below to ask any questions you may have. Thank you in advance for all of your help! We appreciate you !! Use the email listed below fo find out more.
