You read that right: solar power. Ecopalooza 2011 is Kink FM’s 2nd annual solar powered benefit concert held in Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland. Tickets to the event, being held July 23rd from 2pm to 10pm, are generally $35, but if you purchase online and use the given promo code, you can get them for just $15.
What’s cool about Ecopalooza besides the name? The entire event is 100% solar powered, ticket sales benefit a Portland area high school in going solar, there will be an eco-friendly fashion show from SEMPER fashion, performances by Northwest jazz musicians and five winery representatives on-site for wine tasting and information on their selections.
Live jazz performances from: Patrick Lamb, Devin Phillips, Sarah Billings, Mel Brown, Shannon Sanders and guests, Gretchen Mitchell Band and Emcees Andrew Mallory and Don McCoy.
Wineries on-site include: Cooper Mountain, Columbia Gorge Winery, Klickitat Canyon Winery, Brothers and Aramenta Cellars.
When you get your admission ticket at a huge discount, it makes this a fantastic budget event for you and your significant other or friends. Relax to some wonderful live jazz, help a school to go green, try some fine Oregon wines and enjoy the Portland summer evening. Take the MAX or Tri-met to the event and save money on parking, as well as not having to worry about who will drive home. (This is a 21 and over event, so make sure you arrange for someone to watch the kiddos.)
