Green Festival Los Angeles
a festival focused on Sustainable Economy, Ecological Balance & Social Justice
Project Butterfly is a member of the Host Committee for the 1st annual Green Festival in Los Angeles. The nation’s premier green living event comes to Los Angeles. This year, Green Festival celebrates a ten year milestone with over one million attendees in eight cities.
This unique experience celebrates positive solutions working in our communities. It’s where people come to meet renowned authors, actors, visionaries and community leaders; shop with hundreds of green businesses; participate in DIY workshops; enjoy live music and local vegan and vegetarian cuisine; and join friends at the organic beer and wine garden.
10 stages and pavilions will host more than 125 inspirational and educational speakers and teachers, including Dolores Huerta, Amy Goodman, Tom Hayden, Marianne Williamson, Rev. Yearwood Lennox and the Hip Hop Caucus, John Perkins, Starhawk, Mark Hertsgaard, David Korten, Jeffrey Smith, Jodie Evans, Bill McKibben, Medea Benjamin and many more.
Spanish language programming will include Latino cooking demonstrations, greening your home and garden, and activities for the whole family at the Green Kid’s Zone.
Green Festival is the perfect location to support local businesses all in one location. The Green Marketplace profiles hundreds of green and socially responsible businesses and organizations. Attendees browse everything from green, non-toxic home furnishings to organic clothing to Fair Trade gifts, children’s toys and much more.
Peruse the latest in earth-friendly casual wear and couture in the eco-fashion show. View socially and environmentally impactful film shorts at the Communications Revolution Stage and the Sierra Club Green Cinema. Discover the latest in environmentally responsible construction materials and methods in the Green Building Pavilion. Move and meditate in the Yoga and Movement Pavilion. Empower your inner entrepreneur with Green Business Seminars and find your next green careers.
A joint project of Green America and Global Exchange, Green Festival is a non-profit 501c3 event to explore and build sustainable solutions for successful communities and a healthier environment.
