Green Festival

Where: Concourse Exhibition Center, 635 Eighth St. (at Brannan), 487-3293

When: Sat., Apr. 9, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sun., Apr. 10, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

The rundown: Hey San Francisco, it's time to walk your talk. Sure, you say you're green friendly, but are you wearing your vegetables, or writing on recycled turd paper? Saturday's Green Festival brings together some of the country's greenest artisans, small businesses, and nonprofits, with plenty of healthy foodstuffs for good measure. Never fear, your options are more extensive than green magma and Chia juice; they include Indian food from Colorado, pie from Uhuru Pies in Oakland, vegan corn dogs and garlic fries from Gourmet Faire, tamales from Donna's Tamales, and much more. You can also talk sustainable seafood with the watchdogs at Monterey Bay Aquarium, sign up for an urban farming class with BioFuel Oasis, or high-five PETA for their Tempeh District gag.

Save five bucks by pre-purchasing tickets at the Green Festival website
