Seattle’s Green Fest may be lacking feats of strength and the airing of grievances, but there’s plenty else to do when this “party with a purpose” hits the PacNW this weekend. Listen as presenters including actor Danny Glover, Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels, and celeb-foodie Alice Waters offer thoughts on everything from racism to the green economy; see what’s cookin’ at the PCC recipe demo stage; or just mosey through the exhibit hall collecting bits of wisdom and free stuff. Festival passes range from $10-15, but the experience (and the gratis gewgaws) are priceless! And if you’re headed to the festival on Saturday, don’t miss the Grist-moderated panel discussions on sustainable art and youth activism.
Plan it: Saturday, March 28, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, March 29, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Grist-moderated panel discussions are Saturday at noon and 4 p.m.
Map it: Washington State Convention & Trade Center, 800 Convention Place, Seattle, Wash. (map)
Save it: Get $5 off admission when you bike or bus to the festival.
Celebrate it: Join the Seattle Greendrinks crowd for an after-party Saturday night at Pike Pub & Brewery.
