Green Living takes over Venice Beach: Ecofest Today

Venice Beach will be transformed into the annual Eco-Fest featuring exhibitors touting sustainable wears, live music, and a cooperative art exhibit. The all-day event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and is free to the public.

The event takes place at Windward Avenue and Ocean Front Walk at the heart of the Venice boardwalk. The festival boasts the largest outdoor “green festival” in L.A. with over 150 vendors expected to join, offering earth preservation tips and designs.

The goal of the event is not only to gather the community, but also encourage sustainable living and earth-conscious legislation.

“The Vince Eco-Fest is an event that raises eco-awareness, empowers solutions to our environmental crisis, and moves people to take positive action,” said Ed Begley Jr., an actor and festival participate, on the website.

At noon the “One Planet Parade” will march down Ocean Front walk from Rose Avenue to Windward. A solar-powered stage will host music and entertainment for the afternoon starting at 1 p.m. A vegetarian food court will be there for nourishment throughout the day.

A center for recycling for small e-waste¬– cell phones and accessories, laptop and cell phone batteries– will properly dispose of hazardous electronic waste for free.

Biking or public transit is encouraged, but limited parking is available for a fee at beach lots or Westminster Elementary School parking lot, located on Main Street between Brooks and Westminster Avenue.
