It’s finally here! The New Orleans Earth Day Festival & Green Business Expo is tomorrow, Sunday, April 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. The weather forecast is showing sunny with a high of 77 degrees. Looks like a beautiful day to spend hanging out along Bayou St. John.

Our schedule for Sunday is crammed with great performances, tons of activities along the bayou and more than 50 vendors.

We’re incredibly excited about the music lineup — Cyril Neville and Amanda Shaw are both known for their advocacy work in human rights issues and coastal restoration.

“I’m a big supporter of the wetlands and am thrilled to be supporting New Orleans Earth Day Festival this year,” said Amanda Shaw, who performs at 3 p.m. “I’m also really looking forward to playing at the festival with so many great musicians.”
