Wildflower! Arts & Music Festival strives to provide a wild music and artistic experience to our surrounding communities throughout the Festival weekend and beyond. The Wildflower! Care-A-Van program was established to bring the Wildflower! experience to local children’s hospitals and nursing homes in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. In the weeks leading up to the Festival, our team of dedicated volunteers take Wildflower! on the road and visit Scottish Rite Hospital, Children’s Medical Center, Medical City Dallas Hospital and Richardson nursing homes. Our rockstars get to experience the Festival first hand through live entertainment, and crafts, not to mention being a “Festival VIP” is totally rad!
Richardson Recycles at Wildflower!
The City of Richardson, Wildflower! Arts and Music Festival and participating residents in our community recycle more than 5,500 tons of aluminum cans, newspapers, plastic grocery bags and other recyclable materials annually. Each recycled item travels with millions of others to recycling facilities, and beyond on a journey to becoming something newly recycled. Increasing recycling awareness, efforts and the number of participants in the City of Richardson promotes conservation and results in a more environmentally sustainable community. Learn more about the City of Richardson’s recycling program and information about the types of recycling materials that should be placed in the blue bags at www.cor.net/recycling.
