Two-day virtual Earth Festival kicks off this afternoon

You can watch the livestream from reThink Green and celebrate nature from the comfort of your home

ReThink Green is kicking off the summer season with its 17th annual Earth Festival, which runs June 4 and June 5.

“We're bringing the festival online again so that you can safely enjoy Sudbury's environment, culture, and art from the comfort of your own home,” reThink Green said in a news release.

Earth Fest: <../connected> is free and open to all ages. It will be livestreamed today and Saturday on the Earth Festival Facebook Page or on reThink Green’s Twitch.TV Channel.

“We definitely miss our usual festival in Memorial Park,” said David St. Georges, the communications director for reThink Green. “But by bringing the full event online we are able to tap into new content, and film on locations across the city.
