Wednesdays in July: Ecotrust Celebrates Community and Local Music
Sundown @ Ecotrust Concert Series & Innovation Showcase
Portland, OR – Ecotrust heats up July evenings with the fourth edition of the Sundown at Ecotrust Concert Series. The free outdoor concerts celebrate the intersection of music, green living and community wellbeing. Each evening, the musical performances will be complemented by a themed street fair-style Innovation Showcase, featuring over 40 organizations working in the Pacific Northwest, delivering inventive solutions within conservation and environmentally-responsible enterprise. These family-friendly events feature the “Sundown Kid’s Corner” hosted by PDX Kids Calendar, with art and educational activities to keep the little rockers happy. Cold frothy beverages and tasty local fare will be provided by Hot Lips Pizza, Laughing Planet, and Coconut Bliss. The series will be powered by a solar/biodiesel/wind power source.
Green Hammer will be joining the action each week as a sponsor. We'll be celebrating on the rooftop of Ecotrust during the third concert (July 24th) as the presenting host. Sign up for our mailing list for your invite!
