The festival stage will host local performers and storytellers as well as highlight honored guests and instructional demonstrations. This year’s stage will feature Martin Espino sharing Sounds of Ancient Mexico and Chrisha Favors performing a Hula Hoop dance and workshop. The stage will also host a puppet show and acoustic music from local musicians.

Other festival activities included with your ticket purchase: face painting with Lauren Tannehill, primitive skills nature games, hula hoop education workshop, ice painting booth, a reptile zone, cutting wood with a treadle drill saw with Julia Doemer, guided walk through Big Oak Canyon, and a native instrument demonstration on how to make your very own clapper stick.

 

Beverages will also be provided, including beer from local breweries Lagunitas Brewing Company and Stone BreweryGolden Coast Mead will be pouring and educating guests on the history and sourcing of mead.  Lemonade, sun tea and water will also be available for all guests.

Harvest Kitchen’s Gastrotruck and Aloha Acai Bowls of San Clemente will be providing food for purchase. By outsourcing the food, the festival ticket prices are much less this year in hopes of allowing more families to attend the event.  Further, Earthroots staff can focus more on engaging with our guests at the event, enhancing the festival experience by offering more Earthroots-centered booths.

  

For sale items will include: Bandana dying with natural indigo dyes, bake sale of homemade goodies, Earthroots store featuring T-shirts and Big Oak Notecard packets, and of course the Silent Auction.

“I’m still carrying the energy and magic of the Earthroots Festival in my heart. This is what happens for me at Earthroots Field School…My heart gets moved and opened by the Earth-honoring community of adults and children…and I am grateful to be a part of it. The storytelling, the songs, the echo of the flute in the canyon, the heartbeat of the drums, the images of painted-faced children and chocolate-mustached adults…I carry these memories with me this week and draw upon them for soul nourishment. Thank you, Jodi, for your vision, inspiration and perseverance. May all your relations feel this magic for the next generations and beyond. I love you all…”
– Cheryl aka Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders
