News Alert: Edmonton Earth Day Mini-Festival Pop Up Event in Earth’s General Store Parking lot.
Saturday, April 20
Parking lot of Earth’s General Store (www.egs.ca) and Adara Hair & Body Studio, 9605 – 82nd Avenue (corner of 96th Street and 82nd Avenue).
Parking generously provided by Sai Baba Centre of Edmonton (http://www.saibabacentre-edmonton.ca/) 9619 – 82nd Avenue.
As many of you may already know, we were unable to find an available venue for this year, and greatly feared we would have to cancel the event for this year.
Just when we thought all was lost, Michael Kalmanovitch from Earth’s General Store stepped forward and offered to repurpose his parking lot in front of the store. Showing their support Adara Hair and Body Studio offered their half of the parking lot. The Edmonton Sai Baba Center got on board and offered their parking lot for the displaced customers of EGS and Adara. Wonderful!
This gave us a 50 x 90 ft space in which to collaborate with EGS to create a teeny tiny, but very important mini Earth Day Festival Pop Up Event. And less than 2 weeks to build it.
So, here is what we know so far.
The party will run from 11-4.
Our theme for the event is “Small is Beautiful”
There will be a little bit of music. There will be some speakers. There will be some displays and walk about fashion created out of recycled materials by Garbaganza. EGS will be hosting one of their famous vegetarian barbeques in conjunction with the Vegans and Vegetarians of Alberta.
It will be small. It will be beautiful. We hope you will join us.
Here is the invite page on Facebook.
