Greenify Your Halloween in Los Angeles at the Green Festival!

Put some green into your Halloween spirit this year at the Green Festival! If you’ll be in Los Angeles for Halloween, be sure to check out the Green Festival on October 29 and 30 for a walk through of a sustainable community.

The Green Festival is a celebration of community and the Earth. Attendees can learn how to grow vegetables in their back yard and further “green-ify” their homes in “how-to” workshops. More than 125 authors, leaders and educators on green topics will speak and cutting edge documentaries will be screened. There will also be an Every-Day Eco Fashion Show to display eco-friendly clothing with style and personality.

Activities for kids include crafts, stories, music and Halloween adventures. Children will be able to learn introductory yoga, watch inspiring films, get diGreen Festivalrty with a composting bin and much more! Kids are encouraged to bring their own containers so they can take home worm tea for their own gardens.

A popular spot at the Green Festival is the Yoga and Movement Pavilion. Festival attendees can enjoy two days of free classes in yoga, dance, movement and meditation from Los Angeles’ finest instructors. Classes will be held from 11:30am to 4:30pm Saturday and 12:30pm to 4:30pm on Sunday.

The Green Festival is a project of Green America and Global Exchange. It is the largest sustainability event in the world and strives to grow every year. It screens exhibitors for commitment to sustainability, social justice and ecological balance. Each Green Festival is one step closer to a zero waste event, as all signs, plates, napkins and utensils at the event made from recyclable materials. Everything at the event that can be recycled is recycled at the Resource Recovery Station, and large water jugs are provided for all participants. Attendees are encouraged to ride their bikes, carpool or take public transportation to the Green Festival and participate in other sustainable practices!

Since the Los Angeles Green Festival is held during Halloween weekend, attendees are encouraged to wear their eco-friendly Halloween costumes. Tickets for the event are only $10 online and $15 at the door. Green Festival fans can also buy special tickets for $48 online that includes organic souvenirs, two drink tickets to the café and $10 in Green Festival Bucks.
