Rediscover the great outdoors, enjoy live local bands and let the kids explore green ideas, and fun activities. Sol Fest is a two day music festival that celebrates sunshine and outdoor living at Fox Island County Park. Music styles vary from acoustic to wired. Other activities include hayrides, hiking, climbing a sand dune, and experiencing the Nature Center. Tips for green living will be offered by area nonprofit organizations.
The event also benefits kids from schools that struggle to finance field trips. Proceeds fund scholarships for school field trips, summer day camps and environmental programming to organizations that help disadvantaged students.
