Over 150 exhibitors will be providing interactive environmental education games, displays, and green products. Many of them, including nonprofits, will be distributing information about their green goods and services, and handing out coupons, free samples and promotional products. Plant-based cuisine will be available for purchase from vegan vendors such as KC Kombucha, Pure Life Juice, Xochimilco Mexican Restaurant, and Mr. Pops Popcorn.

Electric vehicles will be onsite for guests to examine, ask questions about and test drive or ride in. Valet parking will be available for bikes.

Live music will be performed throughout the day by groups such as Kindred Spirits, the James Israel Band, and Fenix Drum and Dance Company.

There will plenty of kids’ activities to educate and delight the little ones. Local artists will be displaying and vending their original works.

Proceeds from this event will go to the Environmental Council of Sacramento, the mission of which is

“…to achieve regional and community sustainability and a healthy environment for existing and future residents.”
