The 35th Annual Union Street (Eco-Urban) Festival Will Focus on Health and Green Education, Green Living and Sustainability


(San Francisco, CA ) This year, the 35th annual Union Street (Eco-Urban) Festival will be more focused on health, green education, and sustainable living. The event, free to the public, will be presenting Green demonstrations and providing information about healthy choice living and food options. Because of the healthier emphasis and focus on Green Living and Sustainability the fair will be alcohol free for the first time in 35 years.

Festival presenters expect these changes to be positive for the Cow Hollow neighborhood that surrounds the area, the City, as well as for the Union Street Association the sponsor of the event. “Since its inception the Union Street Festival has broken new ground and we feel that it’s time to take the festival into the 21st Century with more emphasis on health, education and sustainability. We have lined up many new vendors in these areas as well as our old favorites such as the world famous Waiters Race to make our fair the best one in the City,” said Union Street Association president Eleanor Carpenter.

The new direction for the festival is to emphasize positive education and fun in a beautiful setting amidst the historic Victorian houses that line Union Street. San Francisco is a forward thinking city and the Union Street (Eco-Urban) Festival helps promote the values of Green thinking in all aspects of day-to-day living. Kick off the summer and spend the weekend on Union Street at one of San Francisco’s most popular and FUN events and go Green at the same time.
