Only a few days away from the 26th Annual Earth Day Fair & Music Festival organizers are still adding more to the musical lineup. Just announced: Elizabeth Etta of Japanese Pirate Canoe has been added, and Vance Fahre of Resination has been named the Emcee for the Earth Day Stage. This Sunday, April 24, from 10 am to 5 pm the public can take part in an entire day of celebrating Earth’s natural resources. Attendees can learn how to protect and preserve the planet for future generations while enjoying several genres of music by Central Coast musicians. As the Eco Village continues to grow, yoga classes are being added to the Holistic Village.
Because of the increased interest, a second stage has been added. It will feature World Fusion Dance performances by the Desert Post Dancers and music by Anthony Rosselli. More acts are confirming every day. At the “Soap Box,” community leaders, political candidates, representatives from nonprofit groups and businesses will step up to share short messages.
This year there are several ways to start out the day. Begin with a Morning Om, slip into Yoga and enjoy a Sound Bath experience, or walk through the Community Village, and check out the many ideas for creating a greener planet. You can also visit the Kid Zone – a space for kids of all ages—and you just might meet Mr. Eco. Big kids can check out the Green Car Show and Ride & Drive to get the feel of alternative fuel vehicles. Over 75 groups will share their Earth Day messages, green solutions and actions we can take to better manage climate change.
A special art exhibit “Where There Once Was Water” will feature the photography of Brittany App in the Glen Pavilion of the SLO Botanical Garden. The Earth Day event extends across the road to where the new Fire Safe Garden is preparing for unveiling. And don’t miss the expanded Children’s Garden which includes a variety of California native plants.
There will be meals, snack items and beverages to fit every diet, plus beer and wine.
