Be a Part of Earth Fest 2017 on April 21!
The RWU Eco-Reps will be hosting our annual EarthFest 2017 in celebration of Earth Day (which is on April 22). It will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. out on D’Angelo Common (on the quad in front of the Library).
Every year we urge all members of the RWU and Bristol community to get involved in any way that they can in order to have the best celebration possible. Your activity at Earth Fest need not promote sustainability, per se. The only guideline for participants is that their activity, presentation or performance be electricity-free and as Eco-Friendly as possible. We won’t let anyone plug in, but using a portable, battery-powered amp would be fine.
Do you play an acoustic instrument? Dance? Want to show everyone your artwork/photography? Maybe you want to demonstrate a cool “green” class project. Maybe you want to sell your artwork, photos or crafts that you’ve created. That’s fine. We’ll give you a 6-foot table and chairs and we won’t charge you a vendor fee. Come join us! You may begin setting up any time after 10 AM. You may perform, present, showcase or sell items for any length of time from 11 to 2. You can use the whole three-hours or perform something for 5 or 10 minutes…..whatever works for you. There is no expectation that you be there the whole time, but if you want to be, you can.
In the past, we have had local vendors sell their handcrafted goods, the Dance Club perform, Musicians’ Guild play acoustic music, Marine Bio faculty shucking and giving away fresh oysters, as well as various petitions and activities such as planting flowers, Bon Appetit food tastings, games and presentations of class projects.
This is our invitation to YOU to participate and join us in celebrating Earth Day. Maybe you have an idea about something that you might like to do, but you’re not quite sure how to make it happen. Contact Scott Yonan at email@example.com and he’ll help you figure it out. FYI – The COW will be back again this year! At least come on out and meet her!
