Date of the Event: 
Saturday, November 9, 2013 - 10:00am - Sunday, November 10, 2013 - 5:00pm

TWELFTH ANNUAL SAN FRANCISCO GREEN FESTIVAL

 

Date of the Event: Saturday, November 9 - 10 am to 5 pm & Sunday, November 10 - 11 am to 5 pm

 

The premier name in sustainability events will take place at the Concourse Exhibition Center; features national and local speakers, workshops, kids activities, green shopping

 

The SF Concourse Exhibition Center will host eco-innovators and entrepreneurs, expert speakers, influential community leaders and activists, nonprofits and green businesses addressing environmental and social justice issues. It is the largest marketplace of eco-friendly, organic and Fair Trade businesses with products and services for home, school and work. The event is a project of two nationally recognized not-for-profits, Green America (www.greenamerica.org) and Global Exchange (www.globalexchange.org).

 

Two days of activities, workshops and special presentations combine to educate the public on healthy lifestyle choices, including The Green Kids Zone, where youngsters can enjoy recycled crafts and educational exhibits, culinary workshops featuring delicious vegetarian cuisine, a robust schedule of yoga classes, an organic food court and sustainable beer and wine garden.

 

Simply put, Green Festival is the best place you can go to learn how to source almost anything sustainable,” says Green Festival President Georgia Malki. “We’ve focused our programming and exhibits in five main areas: healthy foods and cooking, green family and kids’ interests and products, sustainable home and garden, eco-fashion and natural health and fitness, which is why we’re expanding our Yoga Pavilion and Good Food Stage programming this year.”

 

Keynote speakers include Activist Amy Goodman (Democracy Now!), John Trudell (author, poet and actor known for helping to organize the Native American takeover of Alcatraz in 1969), Jim Hightower (best-selling author of “Swim Against The Current”) and other leading environmental, healthy lifestyle and social justice advocates. Jerry James Stone of “Cooking Stoned TV” (www.cookingstoned.tv), and Joe McKinnon (the founder of Numi Tea) headline at the increasingly popular food and cooking portion of the program, which centers around a full slate of programming on the Good Food Stage. Eco-friendly fashion will be well-represented by Eric Coly of Le Dessein (www.ledessien.com), who will present a cutting edge fashion show at the event.

 

Tickets are $10 for a one day pass and $20 for a full weekend pass when purchased online at www.greenfestivals.org, or $15 and $25 at the door. (All tickets provide access to exhibit floor, all workshops/yoga classes, speakers and films.) Free admission for anyone who rides a bike to the event and parks with the Clif Bar bike valet, youth under eighteen, union members, volunteers and Green America and Global Exchange members.

 

KPFA is a Media Partner of this event.

 

 

 

 

43rd Annual KPFA Crafts Fair Inspired Creative Gifts. Concourse - San Francisco, December 14 and 15, 2013 - 10am to 6pm

43rd Annual KPFA Crafts Fair

Inspired Creative Gifts

Concourse ~ San Francisco

December 14 and 15, 2013 ~ 10am to 6pm

www.kpfa.org/craftsfair

 

A beloved holiday tradition benefiting KPFA 94.1 FM Public Radio – a juried crafts fair showcasing 200 exhibitors presenting affordable art and crafts - with something for everyone. This year introduces ‘Edible Tastings’ with local food artisans serving complimentary samples.

San Francisco, California - The KPFA Crafts Fair features the original work of over 200 exhibitors, live music in a spacious food court, live on-air broadcast on KPFA 94.1 FM, plus easy transportation - free continuous shuttles to/from the Civic Center BART Station both days.

The KPFA Crafts Fair showcases the brightest talents in contemporary art and craft, highlighting both experienced and emerging designers who produce one-of-a-kind, handmade and limited edition goods in a wide variety of media. These jury selected artisans and craftspeople combine new and traditional techniques with modern design aesthetics to produce appealingly fresh and innovative work. Each of them will be present at the Concourse to showcase their own work, from outstanding wearable textiles to sophisticated ceramics, luminous glass, innovative furniture and housewares. There’s also gorgeous, evocative photography, original screen-printed art, contemporary paper goods and affordable fashionable jewelry.

KPFA Radio has a reputation for embracing diversity and supporting local communities through its programming. Similar principles of discernment apply in the selection process of exhibitors for the KPFA Crafts Fair. The Fair prioritizes a uniqueness of style, a high level of artisanship, craftwork created in studio (the artist/exhibitor must have an active hand in the making of their work), while trying to represent as much variety as possible. Fair producer Jan Etre has been an advocate of artists and craftspeople for 25 years. Etre explains, "The jury process ensures a wide composition of crafts exhibitors at our show. It is the means by which the great reputation of the KPFA Crafts Fair is reinvigorated every year. And so many artists take great care when sourcing their materials, to be responsible to the ecology of our planet and environment."

The Concourse will be closing its doors after the event and at this point it is uncertain where the KPFA Crafts Fair will be held future years. The fair's last year at the Concourse will be celebrated with a two-for-one deal: buy one $10 ticket and your guest enters for free, plus anyone over 65 or under 17 years of age is welcome to attend for free.

Exhibitor Theresa Kwong, a metalsmith jewelry designer says about the KPFA Crafts Fair, "I was extremely impressed by the friendly staff that made the show run like a well-oiled machine and by the quality of artwork by talented and warm-hearted artists.  I thoroughly enjoyed the weekend."  In describing her work, Theresa says, “my design sensibility comes from my training as an architect, resulting in clean lines and sinuous curves. My work expresses tremendous visual movement, reminiscent of a Frank Gehry structure.” theresa@tkmetalarts.com

They will also be selling products that make great Christmas gifts as well as ideal tasty treats for the attendees to bring home.
