ZONA VERDE
 GREEN ZONE

COME ENJOY the LARGEST OUTDOOR ECO-GREEN VILLAGE in the CITY at the CARNAVAL FESTIVAL
Saturday May 24th and Saturday May 25th

For three decades, Carnaval San Francisco has been a much-cherished occasion for many cultures to come together in one spirit: to share in the exhilaration and creative expression, the abundance of beauty and community, the sheer joy and good times that makes Carnaval San Francisco such a rich experience and a spectacular sight to behold.

Once again as spring ends and summer begins with Memorial Day weekend we can all look ahead to brighter days on our shared planet by taking positive steps to leave a lighter footprint for those who follow. Just another reason to celebrate!
 

This year CARNAVAL SAN FRANCISCO is proud to introduce ZONA VERDE – a fun educational space to enrich body, mind, and soul.  ZONA VERDE is dedicated to celebrating our union with Mother Earth and the rich harmonic traditions laid down by the native people of the original Americas and native traditions globally.  One World many cultures come together in this sacred space of learning methods of healing ourselves and the planet. This ECO friendly zone will spread over one square city block (60,000 sq feet) making it the largest outdoor green event in the city’s history.  Here homage is paid to protecting our sacred planet and the wisdom of the people that came before us. 

Healing ceremonies; dance; renewable energy; earth friendly products; bodywork; organic food specialty items; and a celebration of the power of wind, sun, water, and air will be brought together at Carnaval San Francisco’s ZONA VERDE.  We are committed to bringing attention to pressing environmental issues in a friendly celebratory manner that reflects the spirit of Carnaval San Francisco. 

As we take to the streets in global celebration we encourage the consciousness of our interconnection that has been the defining message of Carnaval San Francisco for 30 years. Respect for our shared existence will blossom through this year’s CARNAVAL a la ZONA VERDE as children and adults alike learn ways to protect, love, and restore the planet and protect its people.  We are committed to promoting peace and a sustainable future for generations to come.
