The Mississippi Earthtones Festival, co-organized by Alton Main Street and the Sierra Club, is a celebration of our river through art, music and conservation. This 11th annual event will attract thousands of people to Broadway, where the street will be closed to traffic between Alton Street and Henry Street from Noon until 10:00 p.m.
There will be several agencies on hand to teach consumers how to incorporate more sustainable practices into their daily lives, along with companies featuring Earth-friendly products and services. A variety of fun and educational activities are planned for families. Dozens of local artisans will offer their nature-inspired, hand-made and environmentally-friendly wares. Wind-powered music will fill the air from two stages throughout the day. Come hungry because there will be a great selection of local food & beverages on site. Broadway businesses are preparing to roll out the red carpet for the crowd, and a number of shops will have displays and merchandise on the sidewalk.
Note: Event details may change at any time. Always check with the event organizer when planning to attend this event or purchase tickets.
