Love beer, the environment and charitable events? Then you’ll want to be at Orlando Brewing on July 27 for “Sustainable Saturday.”
It’s an evening dedicated to local companies, causes, artists and consumers who strive toward sustainability. There will also be a brewery tour, and live music later in the evening, after the event.
A donation of $10 or more will entitle event-goers to an organic meal & Hoppy Hour pricing on all of their organic microbrews. 100% of the donations will benefit land and water conservation in Florida.
The event runs from 5pm to 8:30pm, and is even dog-friendly!
Orlando Brewing is located at 1301 Atlanta Ave. You can find out more info on the event at their Facebook page.
Normally theme parks conjure up mental pictures of excess and over-the-top fun. But at part of its parent company’s “Green is Universal” campaign for November, Universal Orlando will be holding an event that celebrates environmentally-friendly living.
On Saturday, November 19, Universal will hold Green Fest 2011 at CityWalk, from noon to 6pm.
During the event, there will be eco-friendly vendors with free samples and organic merchandise for sale, including food and drink.
Orlando band Lighter Exchange will be providing free entertainment during the event, too.
There is no charge to attend Green Fest 2011 itself, since it’s outdoors at CityWalk, but you’ll still need to pay to park at the Universal Orlando parking garage. Currently, that charge is $15 per vehicle (a great excuse to carpool to this eco-friendly event).
This free event will include healthy living and eco-friendly exhibitors, speakers, and presentations. There will be lots of fun and games for kids, dog and cat adoptions, and environmental and humane education.
Several stages will feature local musicians and there will also be several cooking demonstrations and restaurant vendors featuring vegetarian and vegan food.
2011 Central Florida Earth Day will take place on Saturday, April 23, 2011 at Lake Eola (195 N Rosalind Avenue; downtown) from 10:00am – 6:00pm, rain or shine.
