Find an ACS Chemistry Festival

Festival de Quimica logo

The ACS Chemistry Festival program supports community engagement events. At Chemistry Festivals, the role of chemistry in daily life is emphasized by volunteers through hands-on activities facilitated for the general public. These events are often hosted as part of the campaigns National Chemistry Week and Chemists Celebrate Earth Week, but can happen anytime during the year.

Find a Festival sponsored by an ACS grant based on location. If there's an event near you, contact the event organizer and see how you can volunteer. If no contact is listed, email Festival@acs.org.
