Dublin Pride Week
Make Your Community Better!
Dublin Pride Week is a community celebration, taking place annually around Earth Day, to celebrate and inspire Dublin residents to give back to their City. Along with a large volunteer day that combines the efforts of several hundred resident volunteers to complete beautification projects around the City, a number of other planned events and activities take place to further promote environmental stewardship.
Check back in early 2024 for next year's Pride Week activities and schedule.

Tour of the Wave's Solar / Battery Energy Storage System with Willdan
The City of Dublin is currently in the process of completing citywide energy efficiency and infrastructure projects through a contract with Willdan Energy Solutions. The improvements align with the City’s Climate Action Plan goals and will help the City increase resiliency during planned and unplanned power outages. On Dublin Pride Volunteer Day, Willdan will lead a tour of the energy efficiency and infrastructure upgrades at The Wave waterpark, which includes solar panel and battery energy storage system installation. Register to learn more about how the microgrid will be used to offset energy use of the Wave waterpark and how the building can serve as a cooling center and shelter during emergencies.

Children's Emergency Food Bank Food Drive
Each year, as part of the Dublin Pride Week Celebration, the City partners with the Children's Emergency Food Bank to host a food drive. Food donation receptacles will be available at various City facilities, including the Library, Civic Center, Shannon Community Center, and The Wave during Dublin Pride Week.
Amador Valley Industries is holding its annual Compost Giveaway event at Emerald Glen Park on Saturday, April 22, 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., or while supplies last. Dublin residents can take home one bag of FREE compost on Dublin Pride Volunteer Day. The compost is made from Dublin residents’ yard trimmings and foods scraps. This is a great way to see how Dublin’s food waste journey is circular and directly benefits the community! This is a drive-through event in the parking lot of Emerald Glen Park, off of Gleason Drive. Limit one bag per household; ID or proof of residency is required.
Prescription Drug Take-Back/Document Shredding/E-Waste Collection Event

Intravenous solutions, injectables, and syringes will not be accepted. There will also be a document shredding service and e-waste collection available at the event.
Plogging is a fun activity that entails jogging or walking while making quick stops to pick up trash along the way. The 2023 Dublin Pride Week activities will include a Plogging Challenge to raise awareness about storm water pollution and give residents the opportunity to take action by cleaning up litter from our neighborhoods, parks, trails, and streams.
