10am – Yoga in The Yard with Old Town Yoga

Andrea Bilderback is a seeker and practitioner of holistic health and wellness, and has been practicing yoga since 2002, and teaching since 2008, after receiving her 200 hour Vinyasa training. Andrea genuinely believes that curiosity is what makes life worth living. She is deeply committed to balancing sthira and sukha—steadiness and ease—in her own practice and in her teaching, and to cultivating awareness of this union in her students. Alignment, purpose and intelligent sequencing are of utmost importance in Andrea’s classes, though she lovingly encourages her students to embrace exploration, both on and off the mat. Andrea considers it a tremendous honor to have had the opportunity to teach the Northern Colorado Community at events such as Hanuman Festival in Boulder and the Sustainable Living Fair in Fort Collins.

Electric Vehicle Ride and Drive

You’ll have an opportunity to test drive various electric vehicles thanks to the support of Northern Colorado Clean Cities.  Take one for a spin, learn how they work and get answers to any questions you may have about the distance they will go on a full charge, how often do you have to replace the batteries, how to set up a charging station and home and so much more.




Mending Cafe

Bring your torn or worn out clothing to the Mending Cafe and they will show you how to repair it using a sewing machine or hand stitched repair.  The CSU Clothing and Sustainability group teaches us about the lifecycle of clothing, the effects on our planet from textile production and what you can do to keep clothes out of the landfill.






We make every effort to run Earth Day as a Zero Waste event.  We ask that you pack out what you bring in to help us meet these goals.  Bring your own water bottle, coffee cup and service ware to reduce what you will need to recycle or throw away at the event.  This is a conscious effort to help shift our behavior just a little by bringing your own reusable items.




Beer Garden & Local Food Trucks

Get your fill at La Piadina or Antojitos Del Sureste and wash it down with a tasty beverage from Odell or New Belgium Brewing.  If you need a little pick-me-up Bright Side Coffee will be there to fill your cup.
