Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival

Highlights of the weekend include the annual Green Car Show, the largest collection of efficient and alternative fueled vehicles in Southern California, a free bike valet with complimentary bike tune-ups and secure all-day parking, a ‘Homegrown Roots Zone’ that connects attendees with local farmers, food and beverage artisans, two full days of music, and a beer and wine garden featuring local beer and wine. - Downtown Santa Barbara

History of Earth Day 

On January 28th, 1969, a well drilled by Union Oil Platform A off the coast of Santa Barbara, California, blew out. More than three million gallons of oil spewed, killing over 10,000 seabirds, dolphins, seals, and sea lions. As a reaction to this natural disaster, activists were mobilized to create environmental regulation, environmental education, and Earth Day. - Wiki

Hence why Santa Barbara hosted the first Earth Day Festival and continues to lead the way. 

Now in its 48th year, this year’s festival will take place April 21-22, 2018 at Alameda Park.
