Earth Day Celebration Sunday

Earth Day is officially April 22. But here in Sac, we like to do things ahead of the trends. That’s why we’re celebrating Earth Day this Sunday, April 11th at Southside Park from 12:00 to 5:00 PM, conveniently located across the street from the Downtown Farmers’ Market, so you can plan for a very earth-friendly day.

Earth Day festivities include music, cuisine, and one of my favorites: a capoeira performance!  If you aren’t familiar with capoeira, it’s a high-energy form of Brazilian dance that mixes in martial arts technique. Trust me–it’s super cool! Sacramento’s popular capoeira studio Agua de Beber will be performing. They begin at 1:00 PM with a big batucada parade followed by the capoeira demonstration.

You’ll also find a host of vendors sharing information about how to make your life a little greener and healthier. Come on out for a little peace, love, and earth-hugging. It’ll put a smile on your face.

  1. OMG, I know the organizers had no control over the weather, but the skies opened up almost as soon as things got started at the park. The only reason my friends and I stayed as long as we did was because we brought rain gear. But it begs the question why the festival was held so early before the actual Earth Day. In early April the weather here is always a bit dicey: sometimes it’s as balmy as June, other days it’s so raw you have to dig out the fleece and Thinsulate. Were they worried about having to compete with UC Davis’ picnic next weekend? Or was this the only day they could book the park?

    Anyway, here’s hoping the real Earth Day is a lot nicer. It’s kinda hard to love Mother Nature when she’s dumping all over you.
