Founded in 2015, the Kokomo Beautiful initiative invites residents and organizations in Howard County to take ownership of our community by planting flowers, maintaining public garden areas, and removing trash and debris from our community trails. The Alliance spearheads this initiative through partnerships with the City of Kokomo, Dave Lybrook of The Garden, Howard County and Sunbelt Rentals.

Keep Kokomo Beautiful events are free and open to everyone, so bring your family, friends, neighbors and coworkers along and help the Alliance keep Kokomo beautiful for years to come! (Some activities may have age requirements for certain tasks.)

This year’s events have been announced and we are currently accepting volunteer sign ups. Please click on the dates below to register as a volunteer for individual events. You may sign up for more than one.

The annual Strawberry Festival is made possible thanks to our incredible volunteers. Each year, volunteers help set up, serve strawberry shortcake, clean tables and tear down after the festival. This great community festival would not be possible without individuals and organizations lending a hand to make this event a success.

This year’s festival will be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, June 2. Click on the link below to volunteer.
