2018 Whole Earth and Watershed Festival
The Whole Earth and Watershed Festival is an annual, community-wide celebration of Earth Day featuring activities, exhibits, live music, and local food that will delight and inspire people of all ages. This annual event demonstrates our commitment as both individuals and as a community to work together for the health and livability of the north state region and our planet. This event, now in its 12th year, will take place on Saturday April 21, 2018 from 11am to 5pm.
The Festival features over 160 Exhibitors including businesses, non-profits, government agencies, community groups, local artists, and educational organizations, each of which is actively engaged in promoting healthy living, building healthy communities, or restoring a healthy planet. Each year, the organizers seek new exhibitors from our north state region and beyond to give attendees the broadest possible exposure to innovative ideas and products.
The music at the Festival is incredible and is fast becoming a renowned “music festival” within the Festival. The Miracle Mile Stage, managed by our partners Miracle Mile Records, will feature continuous live music on both a main stage and a smaller acoustic stage located in the large fountain area. There is also a Community Stage in the Sculpture Park with fantastic local performers including students from Redding School of the Arts.
In addition to outstanding music, the Festival is excited to offer a Poetry Jam and a Trashion Show along with lots of options for those who want to be active: a climbing wall, laser tag, and a STEAM Tent with hand’s-on activities designed to engage young people ages 10-18.
