EcoFest Encinitas

When: Sep 26,2021 10:00am-4:00pm

Where: Cottonwood Creek park 95 N. Vulcan Avenue, Encinitas, CA 92024

This free, annual, family-friendly event celebrates 12 years of bringing together eco-minded businesses and organizations with over 2,000 North County residents in a fun, interactive atmosphere. Celebrating 50 years of Earth Day, EcoFest has wide support with partners such as the City of Encinitas, Rotary Club, Sierra Club, and more!

 

EcoFest is known for its incredibly high quality of attendees – dedicated and involved people with the will and means to invest in a green lifestyle. Encinitas is known for its hyper eco-consciousness, boasting the highest electric vehicle ownership in SD county, > 10% solar panel households, and median household income > $113k!

 

A celebration of the entire environmental community, EcoFest offers attendees the chance to engage with over 50 exhibitors while enjoying organic food and beverages, as well as live music and other performances by local artists. EcoFest also showcases alternative fuel vehicles, green homes, green careers, new applications and solutions using renewable energy, and much more!

"All things share the same breath - the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports"

- Chief Seattle

Future community leaders from elementary to high school will also be at EcoFest with their environmentally-focused projects at the Kids’ Planet area, and kids of all ages will enjoy the music, live animals and other activities throughout the day.

 

EcoFest’s goals are to connect and transform the community through information and inspiration, building on the past and looking ahead to the future, exploring new ways to live sustainably. We want to create a long-lasting legacy for future generations through collaboration with government, businesses, and community organizations.

 

EcoFest is a zero-waste event, redefining the concept of waste. We also encourage attendees to ride, walk, or bus. And, we hold an eco-scavenger hunt! Participants will be rewarded with tickets in our Opportunity Drawings throughout the day.  

Join the EcoFest family!
