When you purchase your Green Festival ticket online or at the box office, you will receive “GF Bucks” back for shopping and dining with over 300 unique regional and national green businesses. You may wonder, “What exactly are ‘GF Bucks?'" They are small stamped coins accepted as a medium of exchange that work the same as cash in the Green Festival marketplace.
You can choose to make positive change your payment, by getting involved with the “Pay it Forward, Get it Back” admissions program. “Pay it Forward” by engaging with local Non-profit Allies through volunteerism or donation and “Get it Back” by receiving complimentary Green Festival admission. Local nonprofit allies include Green America, Global Exchange, The San Francisco Education Fund, San Francisco Green Film Festival, East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, Green For All and United Roots Oakland.
Green Festival is partnering with CBS/KPIX and the San Francisco Food Bank to offer free admission to every person who brings four cans of food for donation at Green Festival. Corporate Innovator Ford is offering free admission, available when you visit Bay Area Ford Dealerships before Green Festival.
Whether you choose to shop with your GF Bucks, support a non-profit ally, feed the hungry of San Francisco or explore new innovations in Ford electric and hybrid vehicles, there is an admission option to get you, your friends and your family to Green Festival in a fun, active and affordable manner! Visit the San Francisco Admissions page for more information on each option and to view a list of Non-profit Allies.
