Activities for All Ages
The Festival is definitely an event for families and for kids, with hands-on activities at many exhibitors. Have fun as you test your knowledge, try your hand at new skills, and get involved first-hand with sustainability.
There’ll be plenty of opportunities to express your sustainable creativity. You’ll be able to make crafts out of upcycled materials and get your ideas down on paper at the Story and Art Gathering Center. Commemorate what you love and don’t want to lose to climate chaos, and add your message on the Climate Ribbon Tree. And share your vision of our sustainable community and future -- on video, if you’re willing -- in the Resilience Center.
Delicious local food and drink will be available for purchase, and local musicians will share their unique sounds throughout the day.
Moving Toward Zero Waste
There will be recycling bins available, and compost bins for any food waste, to minimize the impact of the Festival on the environment. And please! Bring your re-usable water mug! You can refill with water from the drinking fountain.
Coming to the Festival
What’s more sustainable than biking to the Festival? There’ll be plenty of bike parking on site.
If you can’t bike, there will be plenty of free parking (see belowa). Or come by bus -- or even on the streetcar, if you don’t mind a bit of a walk from the streetcar stop.
Parking: You can use the lot at the YWCA. There’s also overflow parking just down the street at the National Law Center lot, or on the east side of the street. Please, no parking in the company lot just south of the YWCA.
