The Procession of the Species is part of the Recycled Arts Festival, and features a parade of costumes, floats, music, and dancing with animal and element themes. The Procession is a celebration of community and the natural world through all forms of art. This event is free and open to people of all ages.

Join in! Participate in the parade dressed in your species creation, or cheer us on from the sidelines! There will be plenty of fun music, dancing and a costume contest! Winners will be announced at the end of the Procession. Check back in May to sign up for our Costume Workshops!

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.
