Large festivals with over 50,000 participants have become a customary but hardly investigated practice in many countries across the world. Festivals management is increasingly being complicated because of their negative consequences such as solid waste accumulation and the destruction to the hosting city attractions. Recycling is an important process to reduce the negative consequences of the waste which public plays an extremely important role regarding its success. Therefore, this study is dedicated to explore campers’ environmental awareness and willingness to participate in the solid waste source separation during mega festivals in Kerbala city, Iraq. The outcome of a structured questionnaire survey completed by 20 camps’ managers during one mega festival showed low environmental awareness among the participants. On the other hand, the majority of the campers were willing to separate their wastes during mega festivals. These results can be invested in establishing a base for implementing a recycling scheme during such festivals.
