25th Anniversary Earth Day San Luis Obispo County
Sunday, April 19 — 10am to 5pm
El Chorro Regional Park
also home of SLO Botanical Gardens,
off Hwy 1, across from Cuesta College
Enjoy clean air under clear blue skies in the natural setting of El Chorro Regional Park and celebrate the Earth Day experience at the 25th Anniversary San Luis Obispo County first Earth Day. Although we are learning to care for the planet and the need to tread lightly, Earth Day gives businesses and organizations an opportunity to share their message, cause, product, or service that embraces our quality of life, environment, and local economy.
The SLO Earth Day experience is a combination of fun and education, in an outdoor setting filled with good vibes, music and activities for all. There are interactive exhibits for children; ideas and solutions, tools, products and actions for adults to take all for the sake of preserving, protecting and rehabilitating the planet. Earth Day is the place to meet with your local activist groups and learn how to address the myriad of environmental concerns. Mark the date and come on out to be motivated, educated and activated!
Do your part, support clean air! Ride your bike or take the Double Decker Bus, for free, from the SLO Downtown Transit Center at Osos & Palm to El Chorro Regional Park. The Double Decker will leave every hour on the hour from 10am – 4pm. The last bus will return to the Transit Center at 5:30pm.
Driving? Carpool and park for free at Cuesta College. Limited disabled parking will be available inside the park; an official placard will be required.
The festival will officially open with a blessing by Chumash Elder Pilulaw Khus. The Music stage will ignite with the hottest bands on the central coast at 11 a.m.. The day long music schedule includes Maheyla and The Ritual, Resination, Guy Budd and the Gypsy Souls, Samba Loca and Captain Nasty. A drum performance by Tim Costa and students will take place at 11:50.
