The EPIC Sustainable Living Festival is changing things up this summer, taking a slight departure from the EPIC Expo format and moving things outdoors for a festival of music, entertainment, food, and marketplace goodies at the beautiful VanDusen Botanical Gardens.
When: Saturday, July 6th & Sunday, July 7th 2013 from 10:00am to 9:00pm
Where: VanDusen Botanical Gardens (5251 Oak St, Vancouver)
Tickets: Admission includes entrance to the VanDusen Botanical Gardens. Tickets are currently available online and will be available at the door.
EPIC will showcase some of BC’s best sustainable food, beverages, local live entertainment, products and services. Now in its 7th year as Western Canada’s largest sustainable lifestyle showcase, EPIC is combining environmentally friendly living with outdoor festivities from sunrise to sunset at this all-new venue.
Also new this year is the Outdoor Concert Stage and live entertainment line-up with performances from Kuba Oms and the Paperboys, last year’s Peak Performance finalists Jordan Klassen, Dominique Fricot, Steph MacPherson and many more. The stage will host rhythmic dance, bohemian rock, jazz funk and relaxing melodies as well.
Another new addition is Food Truck Alley which will compliment the restaurants and caterers serving up tasting plates and sustainable beverages on site at the Sip & Savour Garden. Exhibitors will offer craft beer, BC wines, and locally-distilled spirits.
In the centre of all the entertainment and food excitement will be the Sustainable Living Marketplace, the heart of the event. “Highlighting the link between the economy, the environment and the community, hundreds of savvy businesses will offer high-quality products and services that are better for your health and friendlier to the earth.” Over 200 companies will showcase their latest sustainable products like clothing, cosmetics, energy-efficient home technologies, jewelry, and more.
