The bi-coastal launch of the second annual Broccoli City Festival is just days away, meaning there's legitimate cause for excitement.
Organized by L.A.-based, health-focused lifestyle group Broccoli City, the urban Earth Day celebration's East Coast leg is happening at St. Elizabeths East Gateway Pavillion (1100 Alabama Ave. SE) in D.C. this Saturday, Apr. 19. Meanwhile, the L.A. branch will take place at L.A. Mart (1933 Broadway) on May 3. The event starts at noon and ends at 8 p.m., rain or shine.
Hosted by Va$htie, Rock Creek Social Club, Rodney Rikai, Eazee Street and Nate Poetics, the festival features a stacked bill of performers including Cam'ron, Just Blaze, Jojo, Dizzy Wright, Chuck Inglish, Kelela, Chase N. Cashe, JMSN, BJ the Chicago Kid and more.
The festival will also offer a pop-up marketplace featuring fitness and yoga instruction, live art installations, vendors, massages and the chance to sign up for a 5K run.
Broccoli City Festival is about fun, but it's also about learning ways to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. This is for the good of the environment, as well as each individual. "BC Fest promotes living a healthier and more environmentally sustainable lifestyle through cool and relevant campaigns," co-founder Brandon McEachern said in a press release.
