1pm to 5pm at Big Oak Canyon in Silverado, CA
Thank you to our Earthroots Community for helping to make our 12th Annual Festival and Fundraiser another memorable event. We enjoyed adventuring with you at Big Oak Canyon, and despite the weather forecast, the day turned out to be mostly dry, with sun peaking through the clouds towards the end of festival. Thank you to Kristina Clemens for capturing the memories for us via her donated photography services. LINK HERE to check out more of her pictures to relive the magical day!
The stage featured Martin Espino sharing Sounds of Ancient Mexico and Chrisha Favors performing a Hula Hoop dance and workshop. The stage also hosted a puppet show by Laura Bujjoni and Alyson Smith from The Journey School.
