Earthbound’s Earthfest Returns to Bessie Estelle Park on Sunday, April 17

Annual Free Outdoor Concert and Picnic Benefits Black Warrior Riverkeeper

On Sunday, April 17, 2011, local musicians Earthbound will play their highly-anticipated annual free outdoor concert, Earthbound’s Earthfest, to increase awareness for Earth Day and raise funds for Black Warrior Riverkeeper, a nonprofit environmental advocacy organization.

Free for all ages, Earthbound’s Earthfest will take place from 2pm to sundown in Bessie Estelle Park. This Birmingham park is a great recreation and family picnic destination within walking distance of UAB and adjacent to sponsors Gable Square Saloon (803 9th Ct S) and Giuseppi’s Cafe (925 8th St S). Throughout the day, Earthbound and special guests Scott Ward and Big Mule will play several sets.

Earthbound’s Earthfest will feature a bounce castle, dunk tank, hula hoops, frisbees, and plenty of other fun for children. Local artists and environmental organizations will bring displays. Optional donations from the crowd will support Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s efforts to protect local waterways and Birmingham-area drinking water, which is threatened by the Shepherd Bend Mine proposal.
