    San Francisco to Rock Out for Earth Day
    San Francisco's Civic Center Plaza will host an Earth Day celebration Sunday.

    San Francisco is holding true to its green reputation with a day of free live music, eco-friendly art and speakers.

    Civic Center Plaza will play host to Earth Day San Francisco, the day-long event featuring some of the best in Bay Area music and entertainment. The fun gets started Sunday around 10 a.m. and wraps up at 6 p.m.

    Musical highlights:

    Be sure to Check out Lafayette native Forrest Day. His band has been a local favorite for years.

    They’ve got a full, rich sound that’s an infectious blend of rock, hip hop, ska, reggae and jazz.

    Do yourself a favor and wear comfortable shoes because you’re going to want to dance. Forrest Day hits the “Earth Mother Stage” at 3:15.

    Also- We’ve featured the pint-size rockers known as “The World’s Youngest Rock Band” on NBC Bay Area before.

    The San Francisco natives met in pre-school and have been friends ever since. That’s a whopping eight years since they were all 11-years-old.

    They’ve held their own on stages including at Candlestick Park and  Whiskey a Go Go in LA. They will take the Earth Mother Stage at 1:30 p.m.


    The festival features a sustainable chef showcase. Some of the most renowned leaders in the raw food movement will share their tips in making everything from Italian dressing to chocolate food truffles.


    You could reduce the sting of our effect on the environment by backyard beekeeping. That’s the philosophy behind the Marin Bee Company. They’ll share tips and material on how you could pick up the hobby at 1 p.m.

    Whiskey Drunk Cycles describes themselves as a “20th century traveling bicycle show.” They’re mix of daredevils, inventors and entertainers that fit right into the Bay Area spirit of zanny innovation.

    There’s also yoga, meditation, non-stop bhangra dancing, DIY green projects, eco-artists and tons of speakers to stimulate your minds.

    The one thing there won’t be a lot of is parking so take advantage of their partnership with RideJoy to carpool, the bike valet, or catch Muni, BART and Caltrain.
