The Whole Earth and Watershed Festival is an annual, community-wide celebration of Earth Day featuring activities, exhibits, live music, and local food that will delight and inspire people of all ages. This annual event demonstrates our commitment as both individuals and as a community to work together for the health and livability of the north state region and our planet.
This event, now in its 11th year, is organized by a group of businesses, non-profits, and community organizations who volunteer their time to ensure the success of this event. The Festival takes place each year on the 4th Saturday of April. The focus of the Festival is 3 fold: a) to promote healthy living; b) to build healthy communities; and c) to restore a healthy planet.
The Festival features over 130 Exhibitors including businesses, non-profits, government agencies, community groups, local artists, and educational organizations, each of which is actively engaged in at least one of the 3 major areas of focus at the Festival. Each year, the organizers actively seek new exhibitors from our north state region and beyond to give attendees the broadest possible exposure to innovative ideas and products.
In addition to our Exhibitors, the Festival features local food vendors and a Beer Garden with local craft beers and wines near the main stage. The music at the Festival is incredible and is fast becoming a renowned music festival in its own right. This year there will be continuous live music on 3 stages. The Festival gives back to the community by sponsoring The Whole Earth Hustle, a 5K community run that benefits 2 local non-profits dedicated to maintaining and developing our extensive trail system.
This year the Festival is expanding to include a special Presentation Tent with informative and innovative speakers throughout the day. There will also be a STEAM Tent with hand’s-on activities designed to engage young people ages 10-18. Make plans to visit the Festival on Saturday April 22, 2017
