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.
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.
There is ample parking for festival attendees in the Farmers’ & Artisans’ Market parking lot, located at 501 Landmarks Blvd.; guests can simply walk across the pedestrian bridge directly to the event.
