SweetWater 420 Fest - Atlanta, Georgia


SWEETWATER 420 FEST ENCOURAGES GREEN TRANSPORTATION THIS WEEKEND
Bike Valet for Cyclists, ATL Cruzers Shuttles from MARTA Make it Easy Not to Drive

 

ATLANTA – SweetWater 420 Fest encourages the use of “green” transportation to arrive at Candler Park for the festival, April 17 & 18. As part of the festival’s mindful mission to respect the planet and demonstrate an environmentally responsible event, SweetWater 420 is implementing measures to make not driving an easy decision:

Bike Valet for Cyclists:
Cyclists can bike to the event and leave their rides in the safe hands of the good folks from Atlanta Bike Coalition (a member-based bicycle advocacy organization, whose mission is to make it safer and easier to bike in metro Atlanta). Drop your bike off like you would your car at a schmancy restaurant, and pick it up when you’re ready to go. Last year, the bike valet served over 400 cyclists. Camp Twin Lakes, The Scott Rigsby Foundation, and the Young Survival Coalition are teaming up to sponsor the bike valet, and see it as a tremendous opportunity to educate festival-goers about their respective missions: On May 1, the Scott Rigsby Foundation will host its Alliance Ride benefiting Georgia’s wounded warriors; the Young Survival Coalition will hold its second annual Tour de Pink ride benefiting breast cancer research on October 16; Camp Twin Lakes will present its 5th annual Spin for Kids weekend on October 23 & 24.

Ride MARTA to the Candler Park Station; Walk or ATLCruzers Eco-Shuttle to the Park:
SweetWater 420 Fest takes place in Candler Park, conveniently located near the Candler Park MARTA station. Visit www.itsmarta.com to plan your route. ATLCruzers, Atlanta’s new electric car shuttle company, is providing rides from MARTA to the event. www.atlcruzers.com

If you are going to drive to the event remember this is in the Candler Park neighborhood so parking will be very limited and primarily street parking when available. SweetWater 420 Fest encourages everyone to drink responsibly and if necessary, take advantage of our partnership with SafeRide.

For all Atlanta traffic and street closings please visit www.atlantapd.org.

SweetWater 420 Fest is a Happy Ending Productions Event.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome back to the 6th Annual SweetWater 420 Fest

Special thanks to the Candler Park Neighborhood, CPNO, our sponsors, and YOU…our patrons. We appreciate your continued support.

DATES & TIMES:

The 2010 festival will be held Saturday, April 17 from Noon to 10 p.m. and Sunday, April 18 from 12:30 to 8 p.m.

ADMISSION:

Free admission for great live music, activities, food, and education about how each and every one of us can be a part of the solution! Festival goers who are 21+ and with a valid ID can purchase a $5 wristband to responsibly enjoy beer. Portion of Proceeds from wristband sales are donated to Candler Park Neighborhood Organization.

What is the $5 fee for? This is an often asked question. A portion of proceeds to go back to the neighborhood that hosts us and the remainder allows us to cover our operating expenses. Without this we would not be able to have the festival that you have come to know and love. Please help us to continue this event by purchasing a wristband if you are 21+. Thank you for being a part of the solution.

Why we don’t charge everyone? We want to remain a community festival. We would rather not charge your Grandma or your niece and nephew that are under age and just want to come see what we are about.

PLANET 420:

Planet 420 is proud to sponsor local, regional and national non-profits and environmental organizations. Last year, festival goers visited over 15 organizations to learn numerous ways that they could take earth friendly practices back to their community and homes.

Our great friends at Change of Atmosphere help to organize the exhibits and forums for activism for Planet 420. Check back for a schedule of the 2010 planet 420 workshops.

Check out our video of Planet 420 and to learn how you can do your part to save Mother Earth.

KIDS ACTIVITIES:

The SweetWater 420 Festival invites earth lovers of all ages to come out and take part in the festivities. Check back for a schedule of kids’ activities.

MARTA:

In an effort to limit the impact the festival has on the neighborhood and to fulfill Sweetwater 420 Fest’s environmental mission; festival organizers encourage everyone to do their part and take MARTA. The festival is conveniently located just two blocks from the Candler Park MARTA station. Please encourage anyone you know that plans on attending the Sweetwater 420 Fest be earth friendly and respectful of our neighbors in Candler Park.

COMMUNITY:

Since its inception six years ago, the Sweetwater 420 Fest, a two-day music and arts festival located in Atlanta, Ga., has worked to better the Candler Park Community by inspiring positive change and through ongoing community outreach.

We are calling for recycled art again this year. Please contact info@sweetwater420fest.com if you are interested. Thank you to all those who supplied art at last year’s 420 Fest.

Many thanks to all of our volunteers who worked last year’s event. We could not have done it without you.

If anyone is interested in VOLUNTEERING for the 2010 festival, please click here and fill the Volunteer form or contact info@sweetwater420fest.com for more information.
