Published Aug 26, 2014Several festivals this year have taken initiatives to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly, but Calgary's Circle the Wagons is aiming to go the extra mile by teaming up with Green Event Services for a zero-waste event. This will take place on September 20.
Performers include Andy Shauf, Michael Rault, Pumpkin, Kytami, High Kicks, SkiiTour, Beach Season, Napoleon Skywalker, Fever Feel, Earl Stevenson and Erick Mercier. These acts will appear at South Calgary Park and Marda Loop Community Centre.
The event will offer local food, beer, music and art. It's presented by BassBus, YYCFoodTrucks and Village Brewery, and all of the food will be served on products that are recyclable, reusable and compostable. There will be water-filling stations and no water bottles sold on-site.
More information about Circle the Wagons can be found at its website.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will go towards new parks, playgrounds and community outreach. Tickets can be purchased here.
