Dublin Pride Week

Dublin Pride Month logo
Dublin Pride Week is an annual event that promotes a positive image for the City of Dublin.  Due to COVID-19 and the Shelter-in-Place Order, Dublin Pride Week will look a little different this year, but will last longer than usual!  Volunteer Day, which typically kicks off the week, will not happen this year. Instead, please join us for the following socially distanced activities, September through late October: 

Dublin Cleanup 2020: Protect Our New American Backyard
Throughout October 

Join the City of Dublin, in collaboration with the California Coastal Commission in celebrating Coastal Cleanup Day by picking up litter as you go on your neighborhood walks. Remember cleaning litter locally means cleaning up waste that may end up in the ocean later. Wear gloves, carry a trash bag, and report your cleanup by recording data on the CleanSwell app.

Virtual Bike Workshops

Make Soup Not Waste – A Virtual Food Waste Prevention Cooking Workshop

Learn strategies that prevent food waste in this interactive workshop with Anne-Marie Bonneau, aka the Zero-Waste Chef. When you eat all the food you buy, you not only save money, you also conserve resources. During the pandemic, finding ways to use all of the food you have on hand means you can shop less frequently, and stay home longer, helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Tie on your apron, grab your knife and vegetables and join Anne-Marie and our virtual audience as we make soup together with what we found in our refrigerators. No two pots will be the same!  

Watch the recorded webinar.
