• Procession of the Species

Pin It


giraffeThe Procession of the Species is an annual Recycled Arts Festival tradition, celebrating our community and the natural world through art. Participants of all ages joined in the parade dressed as a favorite plant or animal species, or natural element. The Procession paraded through the 2019 festival on Sunday, June 30. The Procession culminated in a costume contest on the main stage. We hosted costume workshops weekly in June where we provided all of the materials and supplies needed to up-cycle and create an amazing costume.

Procession Costume Workshops

Join us at these free workshops where you can create your own mask/costume for the Procession! We will supply all the materials — mostly repurposed/salvaged materials that were destined for the landfill.

Please register ahead of time — space is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis. Attend as many workshops as you'd like.
