Hey, Mooch — hear this ballyhoo!

Join us for a unique twist on Adult Swim! Our sixth annual green-themed carnival highlights the lighter side of sustainability through carny games, upcycled fashion and art, circus-inspired local food, live music, and more.

Sustainability Squabble: Survey says…put your best team together for a round of Family Feud with a green twist (7 p.m.)

Barker Bonanza Open Mic: Mesmerize the crowd with a dramatic telling of your own sustainability sins to win the Sustainability Epic Fail trophy (8 p.m.)

Trashion Fashion: Come dressed to impress in upcycled finery, or make your own trashion accessories in the Art Studio to be runway ready for our Trashion Show (9 p.m.)

Tunes: Live music by the Rohnellaros (members of VO5), who tap their unbridled renewable energy to accompany the fun.

Skill Joints: Get crafty with upcycled felted sweaters, play a round of Climate Change MadLibs, visit the “Guess Your Carbon Footprint” Booth, compete for white elephant arcade prizes and more!

Eats: Epicurean popcorn bar (included with admission). Pizza and carnival snacks available for purchase.

Booze: Beer, wine, and signature cocktail available for purchase.

Bonus Add-on: Join natural dye expert Hannah O’Hare Bennett to experiment with natural, eco-friendly iron-oxide textile dyes, and create a handy, hand-dyed hankie to treasure forever. $5 add-on ticket does not include general admission.
