Celebrate Earth Day in style at the 11th annual Whole Earth and Watershed Festival! This unique event brings together families, educators, businesses, artists and activists to rejoice in the gifts Mother Nature provides. The event features a little something for everyone with activities and booths that aim to help those in the North State advocate for a healthy planet, lifestyle and community.
One activity little kids might enjoy is the Whole Earth Children’s Zone. This special kid’s zone is an activity destination in First 5 Shasta’s Week of the Young Child and will also feature a North State Parent magazine booth where kids can build a mini earth shelter. Older kids can check out the S.T.E.A.M. Tent, which will feature activities related to science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics.
Festival-goers can also hobnob at artisan booths and gather information about groups involved with renewable energy and conservation. And of course, everyone will love grabbing a little nosh from local food vendors.
This festival will be a blast from start to finish – even getting to the event itself can be a lesson in eco-friendly living as there will be a free guarded bike corral and a free RABA shuttle all day from downtown terminal to City Hall.
The event boasts two musical stages, with live music from artists under the Miracle Mile label and performances from community groups.
