In its essence, this will be a celebration of climate action – mixing joy with community power! The community centred ethos of the festival is that it is inviting to all – going beyond the climate bubble, activists and experts.

So join us for a day of craic, community and celebration of climate action!

There’ll be musicians, comedians, performers, artists and much more to entertain the whole family and spread the joy. And of course, lots of delicious food vendors serving up plant-based goodness.

This is a family-friendly event and there will be a whole host of musicians, performers, artists, comedians, local business and enviro group stalls & activities. We are dreaming big!

Best of all? It’s free to attend – so bring all your friends and family!
