Looking to spend a day by the Bay, enjoying live jazz music, drinking beer, eating at a variety of delicious food trucks, and partaking in important environmental discussions? Then catch the North Richmond Shoreline Festival tomorrow.
Every first Saturday of October, Richmond partners with Open Space Alliance, a local social justice, community and environmental organization, on a festival at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline. The event celebrates conservation efforts happening in the city — such as coastal conservancy, metal management, and more.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., one can enjoy breathtaking views from the shoreline and engage diverse cultures at this free-to-the-public event. Who doesn’t love a festival that offers pony rides, bouncy houses, hands-on art projects, Pacific Science Center exhibits, and a petting zoo for kids — not to mention a live theater production, car show, and even a beer and wine garden for adults?
Can’t make it out to the Point? Richmond Confidential will be providing coverage of the annual event, which offers a chance for local organizations and the city to come to together and share with the community the importance of enacting environmental policies and changes which better shape our world.
North Richmond Shoreline Festival, Saturday, October 7, at Point Pinole Regional Shoreline Park, 5551 Giant Highway in Richmond (11a.m. to 4 p.m., free, all- ages, NorthRichmondShoreline.org/Festival.)
