We are proud to announce some big changes this year for Spokane’s Annual EarthDay festival! This is a grassroots community effort that has exponentially grown in levels of artist, vendor, business, and community participation every year. This has always been an event that celebrates the diversity in our community by asking people from all cultures and walks of life to come together and celebrate one of the biggest things we all have in common; our planet. This year, due to participant and vendor requests, we have decided to double our festival in length and size!
To celebrate our biggest Earth Day Festival yet, we are embarking on a few new missions. This year our biggest celebration so far, is booking the Pavillion area in Riverfront Park! Between using a large section of Spokane’s most iconic landmark, and the neighboring central meadow this year holds more potential for growth than we’ve ever seen before! It will be a gorgeous sight filled with the best of our community’s artists and entrepreneurs showcased between magnificent structures that will cover our stages! Our group is committed to reaching out to many new sustainable focused artists and vendors, with the goal of providing unique and usable information to all. There is also a small list of other attractions we are working tirelessly to secure. EarthNight this year, (concerts held in the structures, with live artists, dancers, and aerial performers) will be hosted again, as last year’s turnout was a smashing success! However, in order to be able to book more notorious artists and key people/performers we will be fencing off the area around the domes and charging a small fee for EarthNight participation. There will be music, and a variety of other performances from sundown until the local noise ordinance takes effect.
We have many levels of community involvement to offer this year, and the potential for growth is unlimited!
This year we are working on building many other amazing features! We have double the space and have also expanded the event to two days!
