Help Area Nonprofits Get to WorldFest!


This year the Center for the Arts and California WorldFest invite the public to vote for their favorite local nonprofits to win free space at WorldFest 2018 for their organization!  

The beauty of WorldFest is its’ ability to bring together diverse people, cultures, and missions through the power of music! Help us celebrate the diversity of the world and our local community by supporting your favorite nonprofit on their journey to WorldFest 2018.

Whether the space is used to table, raise awareness, provide educational workshops or speakers, or to recruit volunteers is totally up to the nonprofit to decide.

Voting is open April 1 – April 30, 2018

Part of the mission of The Center for the Arts is to actively collaborate with our nonprofit partners to provide access to our incredible community of patrons, volunteers, and artists! We’re excited to be able to give a stronger presence and attention to that mission at WorldFest this summer and strengthen our local network of community leaders and activists both here in Nevada County and around the world!


With so many incredible nonprofits in the area and a limited amount of space, it was too difficult for our team to choose between the organizations – so we decided to ask the public for help!


Cast your vote for your favorite nonprofits to win free space at WorldFest 2018 before the contest ends on Monday, April 30! For every vote, you’ll be entered to win one of 4 WorldFest swag packs, including a T-shirt (in the size of your choice) and an assortment of other WorldFest memorabilia!


Help us spread awareness about the diverse organizations in our community and build toward a new level of collaboration between the members of the WorldFest family. Cast your vote today!
