February 14 - Earth Day Celebration

Sunrise will celebrate green living with a free, family-friendly Earth Day Festival on Saturday, April 14, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Join us at Sawgrass Sanctuary (237 North New River Circle, Sunrise 33326) for a day of outdoor fun sponsored by the City of Sunrise Utilities Department and All Service Refuse.

The City's fourth annual Earth Day celebration will feature live music; children's activities (including bounce houses, face painting, and arts and crafts); a farmers' market; handcrafted goods; food and beverage vendors; and representatives from eco-conscious organizations.

The Festival's entertainment lineup includes:

11:00 a.m. - Eco-Chic Fashion Show. View upcyled designs created by students from The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Sponsored by Goodwill and the Aveda Institute.

11:45 a.m. - Armando Zuppa Band. Zuppa's lively newgrass sound kicks traditional banjo up a notch. Enjoy his unique instrumentation and varied musical influences.

1:15 p.m. - Suenalo. Named "Best Latin Band 2011" by Miami New Times, this eclectic group blends Afro-Caribbean sounds with rock, jazz, funk, hip-hop and R&B. Their contagious rhythms are made for dancing.

2:45 p.m. - Seven Nations. This is not your father's Celtic band! Their rollicking musical style - which veers from roots and folk to fusion-rock - and their charismatic stage presence  have won over audiences around the globe.

Event parking and admission are free. The first 1,000 people through the gates will receive a BPA-free water bottle that can be filled throughout the day at the City's complimentary Water Station. No coolers, bottles, pets or bicycles will be allowed in the park during the Festival.
