The Community Environmental Council (CEC) presents the 2013 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival. Widely acknowledged as the birthplace of the modern environmental movement, the festival showcases the latest in green technologies and products to the environmentally savvy of California’s Central Coast.
The 2013 festival will promote the power of grassroots action in protecting and preserving the environment, with specific resources for reducing the use of fossil fuels. CEC’s Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival is FREE for attendees. The festival will include the annual Green Car Show containing the largest collection of efficient and alternative fueled vehicles between Los Angeles and San Francisco and a Clean Tech Pavilion offering up products, services, and processes that rely on renewable materials and energy to reduce emissions and waste. In addition, the festival will feature approximately 250 exhibitors, some selling goods and services in the EcoMarketplace, others promoting their cause in the Public Square.
The community-organized festival is one of the longest-running and consistently held Earth Day celebrations in the country – and is believed to be the largest Earth Day festival on the West Coast. Santa Barbara’s environmental reputation attracts national media, celebrity attention, and local crowds; the 2012 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival drew over 35,000 visitors. Come join this year and experience the live music, enjoy the delicious organic foods, indulge in the Beer & Wine Garden, and much more!
