The Big Event 2024

Saturday, March 2, 2024

We are so excited to welcome you back for The Big Event for 2024! The Big Event is a huge citywide day of service led by University of Florida students to serve the Gainesville community. We promote the value of doing things for the “Gator Good” by giving students an opportunity to show appreciation through service to the Gainesville community for allowing the University of Florida to be a part of their family. The Big Event kicks off with an opening ceremony before a full day of service-oriented activities to help build a better and closer connected Gainesville. This year, The Big Event will take place on Saturday, March 2nd. We could not be more excited to give back to Gainesville this year and can’t wait to see you all there!

All volunteer slots have been filled! If you registered prior to 7pm on 2/24, your volunteer slot is confirmed. To be on the Volunteer Waitlist, please fill out the form below.
