Interactive kid-friendly exhibits to include Stuart Wilde’s live llamas, Star Eco-Station’s and Children’s Nature Institute’s wild animals; Heal the Bay, Surfrider, and California Science Center’s nature exhibits. Kids will have a chance to adopt a shark, pet a llama, or sit in the driver’s seat of a Big Blue Bus powered by natural gas.

A “Sustainable Transport Village” will include displays of alternative fuel vehicles including Toyota 3rd Generation Prius, Honda hybrid(s), electric bikes and scooters. However, festival attendees are encouraged to walk, bike, or take the Big Blue Bus to the event.

“We are pleased to return to the Promenade and bring so many family oriented exhibits to Earth Day, because kids can encourage parents to buy environmentally friendly products, which reduces pollution and global warming, making a healthier future for all of us,” said Environmental Consultant to Earth Day LA, Jim Stewart, PhD. “Earth Day helps people learn about environmental solutions already in the marketplace and learn effective ways to take action. This year we are urging everyone to go to and see how they can become ‘carbon neutral’ and reduce their carbon footprint.”

At the heart of the festival, live music will be presented by Mamapalooza!; Women-empowered, Mom-branded Entertainment & Activism for a greener planet, featuring among others Stacy Robin and the Mama Earth Band, Sabina with Free To Be Me Drum Circle and other award-winning singers & songwriters who will grace the stage from 11am to 7pm. Santa Monica City Councilmember Kevin McKeown, and other public officials are expected to speak.

An estimated 15 thousand people will join the carbon neutral event on the Promenade to see solar energy systems, environmentally responsible investing, organic gardening, hemp and organic cotton clothing displays, and much more.

Festival Director, Kacy Palmieri notes, “This festival has always been for the community of Santa Monica, Los Angeles, and the World as visitors will now come to shop green and having fun while doing it!”
