Are you ready to help ignite change in your neighborhood? Green Long Beach is all about getting people involved in their community by making a conscious effort to use sustainable or “green” practices on things as simple as reusable grocery bags as well as on a larger scale by using renewable energies like wind and solar. This Saturday, June 11th marks the 3rd Annual Green Long Beach Festival which features a full day of music, art, green workshops & speakers, tips on creative reuse, old cell phone drive, urban gardening, organic vendors and food, all which is solar powered!

This year the festival is to be held at on Promenade way in downtown Long Beach which is just off Broadway and Pine across from Congregation Ale House. The festival kicks off at 10:00 am and goes till 8:00 pm featuring a wide variety of entertainment including popular local acts like Wild Pack of Canaries, Program Love, Brenda Carsey, and the Clouds. In addition to the great music there is also a green fashion show featuring local clothing companies and fire dancing by the girls of Sirena Serpintina. The best thing about the event is that it’s a free, family friendly event that shows our kids that living a sustainable and green lifestyle can be fun and rewarding in so many ways. Check out the festival flyers and map for more information on the event and a full line up of entertainment and workshops, and to give you just a little taste of what to expect also watch LBPP video coverage from LAST years Green LB Fest below!
