Festival filled with fun and free activities!

Stockton and San Joaquin County will celebrate its 29th Earth Day Festival on Sunday, April 23, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Victory Park behind Haggin Museum.  “Water is Life” is the theme of this area’s premier environmental event and will focus on educating local residents in taking care of our environment. Over 80 vendors will participate, including some great healthy food fare.  It is a fun day for kids and families, and admission is free.

Through an array of informative, interactive booths, demos, displays and exhibits, this annual Festival is a chance for local area schools, environmental organizations, community agencies and green businesses to come together to share ideas and discuss important environmental issues with area residents. Local area schools will teach about how to better take care of our Earth with a variety of hands-on activities, and environmental organizations will provide education about important green issues and how we can make a difference. Community agencies will help us live a healthier, more positive life, and green businesses will assist attendees in making changes to their home and workplace.

Warm-up for the day with stretching during a relaxing hour of yoga on the park green starting at 10 a.m.  Join other local cyclists, young and old, and peddle to the Festival and secure your bicycles in a safe bike corral staffed by the San Joaquin Bike Coalition as you enjoy the activities at the Festival.

Great entertainment will be featured at the Festival. A variety of local area bands and cultural groups will be there to captivate and delight attendees. This year’s music lineup includes: UOP’s The Brubeck Institute Jazz Quartet, blues group Shad and the Groovinators, rock band Project 58, New Age electronica group Yellow Dot Project, and the Washboard Monkeys performing bluegrass and swing. Stockton Bukkyo Taiko Drummers will open the Festival at 11 a.m. and an organic drum circle will close the day at 4 p.m. on a percussive note.

The day before the Festival on the official national Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, local scientists and concerned citizens will “March for Science” at 9 a.m. at Victory Park. This walk will focus on the responsible application of science to government. The marchers will be advocating to prevent changes to existing environmental policies that could cause negative effects to our planet such as climate change.

The Earth Day Festival is brought to you by the collaboration, cooperation and dedicated work of the Peace & Justice Network, City of Stockton, San Joaquin County Office of Education, Mayaco Marketing/Internet and Stockton Area Water Suppliers. Companies and organizations are encouraged to participate and support this important environmental event by becoming a sponsor. All sponsors will be recognized before and at the event.

This Festival is made possible with the help of wonderful volunteers from the community. If you would like to volunteer, there are many ways to help on the day of the event. Join others who care about our environment and help make this year’s Earth Day Festival a success.
