From live music and entertainment to an Earth Day cleanup, Berkeley’s Bay Festival will offer something for everyone.
Held at Shorebird Park in front of the Shorebird Nature Center, 160 University Avenue on Saturday, April 22, the Berkeley Bay Festival will offer residents and visitors alike the opportunity to celebrate Earth Day with live music, food and activities for all ages.
Scheduled from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Berkeley Bay Festival and Earth Day Celebration brings the bay and the local community together with live music, performers, food, hands-on educational activities and free boat rides, organizers said in a news release.
“This free family-focused event celebrates the Bay, its local wildlife, and the people and agencies dedicated to its protection,” the city of Berkeley said. “Over 30 environmental and wildlife conservation organizations from around the Bay will share their exhibits with the public.”
Music and entertainment includes Bug Family Band who will perform music for children and families from Noon until 1 p.m. followed by Puerto Rican folkloric vocal, drum and dance troupe Aguacero from 1:25 to 2:25 p.m. Closing out the live entertainment is the fast-paced Louisiana-style dance band Motor Dude Zydeco who will perform from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m.
