A Homegrown Roots​ zone that connects attendees with local farmers, food and beverage artisans, and organizations working to promote sustainable food systems in the Central Coast.

2+ days of music on the Main Stage​, organized by New Noise, as well as music and speakers on two mini-stages. A tasty assortment of local, sustainable, and organic menus at the Food Court.
