There will numerous vendors such as upcycle, art, and cottage industry vendors. Admission to the event is free.
Many people hear waste reduction and think of the standard household recycling of aluminum cans at the curb, but options are much broader than that. Many things can be reused to reduce the amount of waste in our environment. There is a term for the ingenious process of reinventing something with a better quality, or for better environmental value: upcycle.
The purpose of the Pasco Upcycle & Arts Fest is to reduce waste by changing peoples’ perceptions of what can be salvaged into not only something useful, but often times a work of art. The event has numerous upcycle vendors with items such as pallet furniture and spoon bracelets.
This is a family friendly event. Fur children are welcome - please make sure to keep them on a leash. There will be food vendors present, but you are more than welcome to bring a cooler in and pop a squat for a picnic. We will have some tables and chairs for you to hang out in, you can also bring your own to listen to the amazing music in the park.
We are thrilled to have local musicians playing all day. If you are not already a fan take a listen and you will be.
