WILD ALBERTA EXPO

We would like to extend an invitation to you to take part in our Wild Alberta Expo 2014. This 12th Wild Alberta Expo will be held in conjunction with the Climb and Run for Wilderness. The expo is a great opportunity to educate and create awareness of our environment and the opportunities citizens have to learn, participate, and take action. We hope you will come and showcase your work!

To submit an application to be an exhibitor, please click here.

There is no fee for participating; however, we encourage all Wild Alberta Expo participants to sponsor a climber or collect pledges and climb the stairs, or contribute a prize that climbers and participants will earn at the event in support of Earth Day and the work that AWA does to protect and preserve wilderness in Alberta

The exhibitors' deadline for registering for the Wild Alberta Expo is Monday April 14, 2014. Booth space is limited and is allocated on a first come, first served basis. Merchandise sales are permitted. All applicants will be contacted by April 17, 2014.
