    “Our Vision for the Festival
    Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival provides a popular annual event that brings together key individuals, organizations, and companies in our community who are working to help us not just envision but also create a resilient future for Tucson and Southern Arizona.

    Building Resilience, Creating Community The motto of the Festival expresses how this family event is as much a community expo as it is a celebration of local and regional actions promoting sustainability.

    This Festival is your opportunity to share what’s happening now and explore what each of us individually and all of us as a community can do heading into the future.”

    “Envision Tucson Sustainable Festival provides a family-friendly annual event that promotes sustainability in Tucson and Southern Arizona, featuring organizations, companies, and individuals in our community who are working to create a resilient future for us all.

    Share this bright vision of the future, with exhibitors, vendors, and demonstrators showing techniques for building local and neighborhood resilience. You’ll be able to check out electric vehicles and solar ovens, get “up close and personal” with a solar panel, see 3D printing in action, find new ways to protect our desert ecosystems, try out some recycling/upcycling crafts, make your own seed “bombs,” and taste some tasty — and new to you — local fruit. You’ll find out about localizing our regional economy and living in harmony with urban wildlife. And don’t miss the opportunity to see models of aquaponics and paper adobe, learn about composting and desert gardening, explore ways to make Tucson more water-efficient with water harvesting and dry wells, and much, much more.

    Share your own vision of the future at the Story and Art Gathering Center, and add your message on the Climate Ribbon Tree. Enjoy activities for all ages, with local food and music. Admission is free, with plenty of free parking and a bike “valet” if you choose that environmentally friendly way to come.”
