Welcome to the Green Festival Blog!

Ten stages and pavilions give you and your friends the opportunity to engage with 125 local experts and nationally-renowned authors, actors, leaders, educators, farmers and visionaries. Exciting keynote speakers include Ralph Nader, Amy Goodman, Gilberto Gil, Patti Moreno, Reverend Lennox Yearwood, Jr., Dean Baker, Bernardine Dorhn, Bill Ayers, Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, Daniel Pinchbeck, Goumbri, Tracy McQuirter and many more.

Green Festival's mission is to inspire and inform as many people as possible to help make our world more just and sustainable. Our new admission options in Washington D.C. and San Francisco invite you to invest in your local community while receiving immediate dividends from Green Festival. “Pay It Forward and Get it Back at Green Festival” invites you to volunteer with or donate to local nonprofit organizations to receive complimentary admission to Green Festival. Also new this year, when you purchase any ticket to Green Festival, you receive "Green Bucks," which can be used as currency at Green Festival in the green marketplace.

We look forward to seeing you this fall in Washington D.C., October 23-24 and San Francisco, November 6-7. Plus, we are already planning an amazing year to celebrate our 10th anniversary in 2011!
