San Francisco has always been one of the greenest and most environmentally aware cities in the US and worldwide; with a population that is always ready to lead the way and show the rest how it’s done. One of the ways in which San Fran shows its “green” culture is through the celebration of Earth Day which has been going on in the city for years.
This year’s celebration also happens to mark the 45th anniversary of Earth Day International and it will be held on Saturday, April 18th at 22nd Street, between Mission and Valencia. The organizers are very proud to point out that this new location is far more exciting and hip than the old, which hosted the event during the previous four years.
Earth Day San Francisco has traditionally been the largest celebration of its kind on the West Coast and with this year’s incarnation, it will also be the most impactful as well.
It will attract activists from all over the world, coming together and sharing their views and their expertise on the widest possible range of environmental topics. They will also be sharing their knowledge, educating and inspiring the visitors.
Among other things, EDSF will feature a number of lectures and workshops, as well as DIY and art projects, a showcase of electric and clean energy vehicles, amazing eco fashion shows, a holistic wellness area, an eco-kid zone and a throng of exhibitors who will showcase their eco solutions and products.
Finally, there are three music stages which will host performers and bands such as Rupa and the April Fishes, The Bayonics, Boca Do Rio and People Power Band.
