Madeline Trait will produce an art installation from aluminum cans. Aluminum Butterflies, an up-cycled art piece creates an illusion of metamorphosis through a pile of discarded aluminum cans and magically transforms into gracefully fluttering butterflies.

Show some LOVE for the parks! Be sure to hit the Beer and Wine Garden, 10% of the daily profits will benefit local non-profit San Mateo Parks and Recreation Foundation.

Raise a glass of Forlorn Hope’s ‘Wine of a Thousand Loves’! Mil Amores and Verdelho will both be available for your tasting pleasure in the Beer and Wine Garden.

Part of our intentions with creating a sustainable lifestyle is partnering with brands that share our vision and values. Which is why we are over the moon about having Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. as a Peace, Love, and Green event partner. Their highly regarded use of whole-cone hops, quality ingredients, and sustainability initiatives makes them a surefire reason to celebrate this Saturday. Be sure to join us in the Sierra Nevada Beer Garden and taste craft beer that has set the standard for artisan brewers worldwide. Learn more about Sierra Nevada. 

Guests are also invited to the Renew, Restore, Replenish area where ZICO coconut water will keep you hydrated with complimentary drinks.
