Sacramento Earth Day Festival Coming This Sunday


Attendees at the 2008 Sacramento Earth Day Festival admire a solar-powered generator.

Want to enjoy some free entertainment this Sunday, find out how you can live greener, and celebrate a cultural milestone?  The Sacramento Earth Day Festival is coming to Southside Park (8th and T Streets), Sunday, April 11 from 12 noon to 5:00 p.m.  This year’s festival will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first Earth Day in 1970.

As always, Sacramento Earth Day will have lots of live music, food, information, and fun.  The musical entertainment begins at noon with the Koyasan Taiko drummers, and will include entertainment by Autumn Sky, Walking Spanish, Shayna and the Bulldog, and many more artists–as part of the 40th anniversary theme, they’ll be performing many of the rockin’ sounds of the 1970s.  A wide range of booths will offer information on sustainability, conservation, renewable energy, green building and more.

Free valet bike parking will be provided by the Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates.  Attendees are encouraged to bike, take public transit, or walk to the festival.  Attendance at the Sacramento Earth Day Festival is free. 

For more information or to volunteer, please visit the website of the Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS), or call them at (916) 444-0022.  Or, pick up an Official Earth Day Program insert in this week’s issue of Sacramento News & Review.  Let’s make the next 40 years greener, cleaner and healthier than ever before!
