This year the Festival has significantly stepped up its efforts to reach its "Zero Waste" goal by arranging to collect all food waste for composing. Clearwater was the first major festival to develop the concept more than 42 years ago with the Litter Picking Committee, and today it is an integral part of our efforts to make our event a model for all other Festivals to follow.

Clearwater is also using recyclable products and encouraging visitors to bring their own water, minimizing the environmental impact on the site. The five performance stages are all powered with 100% sustainable energy that includes solar and bio-diesel. The festival will also feature hands-on environmental education workshops and exhibits, including the GREEN LIVING EXPO, where companies, firms and organizations showcase green products or services, an the ACTIVIST AREA, where visitors can get information on many of the community's important environmental groups.

Also on Sunday May 18: THE RIVERLOVERS' SHADFEST from 11am to 5pm. At 2pm - Free shad samples from the Hudson River Foundation. At 2:30pm - Arm of the Sea Theater performs Music all day on the Shadfest Stage. Shad dinners and vegetarian chili for sale (also hotdogs and hamburgers) plus craft vendors and activist groups, all day long! Rain or shine!
