Festgoers will be encouraged to hop on a bike and help provide power for the show. Giveaways will encourage cyclists to keep pedaling, and a hydration station will be available for those looking to refuel. All bikers will also be entered to win a new Fat Tire bike donated by New Belgium Brewery.
The festival, in its sixth year, will show attendees the benefits of small changes and how to implement environmentally friendly changes in their neighborhood. Green vendors will offer fresh organic treats, tips to save money and make your home efficient, unique environmentally friendly crafts and products along with some of the newest green technology and inventions.
Kids will enjoy fun filled activities provided by the Wicker Park Parents Association from 12-5 p.m. each day of the festival. Activities include: recycled arts & crafts, DIY musical instruments, henna artists, bounce house, mini-golf, kiddie play area and children's musical programming.
The suggested donation for the concerts is $5, payable at the festival. The donation will benefit Wicker Park Parents Association to be used toward children's programming in the park.
